Have you ever wondered where your food actually comes from?
Nestled just six miles west of the Magnificent Mile in Humboldt Park, Metropolitan Farms is a thriving urban agricultural destination, producing locally-sourced tilapia, salad greens and culinary herbs year-round from within our state-of-the-art greenhouse. We utilize aquaponics; farming that combines fish with a hydroponic growing system in a closed-loop without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers.
4250 W Chicago Avenue is also home to cut-flower farm Avium Flowers and outdoor vegetable farm Dirt Doll. Learn all about these three fast-growing companies with a 90 minute tour from the founder, who’ll exhibit a fascinating aquaponic greenhouse, and guide you through the grounds of the outdoor farms. Come to see, hear, smell, taste and touch something new.
