Cloning typically comes with a negative connotation. However, when you’re “cloning” basil and other herbs there is no genetic modification or complex scientific lab technique required. You simply cut one of the leafing shoots and place in water and within about 10 days you have a new, healthy plant. At Foliaj Farms we use this technique to help insure healthy plants and speed production. And, of course, we use no GMO plants or seeds. The picture here shows a newly rooting basil plant in a rockwool cube, but typically we use coconut coir for easier composting... always have to respect the planet!!! #indianagrown#locallygrown#microgreens#hydrponics#urbanfarming#italiancooking#farmtotable
We love the finished products that our Distillers put out everyday. But if you are wondering how it went from grain to glass, you can take a behind-the-scenes tour of our production facility and get up close and personal with the process!

We hear that brandy is coming back. Well around here it never left. Our Private Reserve Brandy is one of our original (and most interesting) spirits. We have been producing this gem for more than a decade, and we still do it the same way. Handcrafted in small batches, aged for a minimum of 5 years in French oak, it is everything you want from a luxurious fruit-forward spirit. #starlightdistillery#brandy#indianagrown
Rift white oak wrapped around this white buffet/cabinet to match the owners stunning dining table. Would love to build the table in the future! -Project from a little while back but I’m new to IG so playing catch up on the highlights
Feed your body. Feed your neighbor. Feed your soul. As our tag line implies, urban farming isn’t just about growing healthy produce. It’s about growing communities, getting healthy food to those that might not otherwise have easy access, and it’s about the health of our bodies, our minds, and our planet. Foliaj Farms is dedicated to leading a movement that brings healthy food to EVERYONE in a healthy and sustainable way. #indianagrown#locallygrown#urbanfarming#hydrponics#farmtotable#nutrition#marionindiana
Tip Tuesday 🌸 yes, flower food for fresh flowers does extend the life of your flowers, ask for it and use it!
Flower food provides three ingredients: Sugar to keep the blooms in full color, an acidifier so the water ph is adjusted to help the flower take up water easier and a biocide to minimize bacteria growth so the stems do not get clogged.
Be kind to them and they will reward you with lasting beauty!

Yesterday was our little girl’s birthday. She wanted to go to the fantastic food fest so we did. Oh my, she sampled so many food especially sweets. One of her favorite sweets was brownies from @hannahshealthybakery . She loved it so much that she purchased the brownie mix with her own birthday money. Our little girl also insisted on having brownies instead of birthday cake so we baked brownies when we got home. She had an amazing day.

Microgreens are a nutrient-dense, flavor-rich superfood that can make virtually any dish look and taste better. Here, we’ve spiced up the morning omelette with some colorful radish microgreens containing nearly 40x the nutritional content of fully grown radish. Whether you’re making a smoothie, salad, pizza, meat dish, or virtually anything else try these nutrient rich greens to make it even better. #foliajfarms#urbanfarm#urbanfarming#hydrponics#microgreens#locallygrown#indianagrown
