What We Do

The mission of Falling Waters Farm is to provide the highest-quality, locally-produced fish, basil, leafy greens, and microgreens in an efficient, environmentally-responsible and sustainable manner.

Our farm is located in a warehouse in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. We grow indoors, all year around and are currently growing basil, leafy greens, many different types of microgreens. We also raise Blue Nile Tilapia.

We are a Food Safe facility using organic practices to grow the best possible clean and local produce. We grow using a fraction of the space and water as an outdoor farm does.

We are certified food safe by the USDA Harmonized GAP food safety audit. We are listed on the USDA website. We also have organic certification. We are certified USDA Organic by EcoCert ICO.

Our farm uses a decoupled Aquaponics system with a proprietary sanitizing step between the systems. Aquaponics is the symbiotic cultivation of vegetables and fish in a closed, recirculating water system. Fish need purified clean water in order to thrive. Likewise, plants need organic nutrients in order to grow. Fish create water conditions that are naturally rich in plant nutrients. Plants, in turn, uptake nutrients thus purifying the water for return to the fish. Biological and high-tech filtration further cleanses and sanitizes the water for re circulation.
