The basil got harvested today to go out to restaurant clients of ours, so I thought I would take some pics early this morning before they came out of the system…If you notice Siena Tavern’s pasta sauce tasting even better than it already is (yes, hard to imagine!!), that’s because they are now using Greens & Gills’ fresh, local basil. #hardtobeat
At Greens & Gills, we have been known to take lunch breaks at our local Subway Sandwich shop. We also have been known to bring in some petite mustard greens, kale, cabbage, kohlrabi and arugula to take our subs to the next level. Check it out!
Last Friday, December 28th, 2012, the Chicago Department of Public Health came out to do a licensing inspection. We passed and can proudly say that Greens & Gills, LLC is the FIRST licensed aquaponic farm in the city of Chicago. It took a lot of hard work, but in the end we think it will all pay dividends.
We are now legally allowed to sell our produce and fish to restaurants, grocers, and at farmer’s markets. Look for us in your neighborhood in 2013…
