Harpke Family Farm is a Dania Beach-based urban farm, founded in early 2013 by Tamer Harpke. Once only a backyard hobbyist, Harpke’s green thumbs now tend to multiple plots yielding local produce, a special focus on his year-round, live microgreen and gem lettuce production.
An ambitious bunch of Miami’s new generation restaurateurs are leading the way and firmly focused on supporting their local, independent suppliers. We sat down with the creators of locally respected restaurants Loba, Pinch Kitchen and Phuc Yeah as well as locally based urban supplier, Harpke Family Farms to talk about how they are using quality produce and bringing sustainable practices to the Miami, FL community.
Supplying top Dade & Broward restaurants, yachts and consumers alike, Harpke Family Farm employs sustainable, organic farming practices, while refraining from the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. Growing methods include the use of Jackpots, raised beds, hydroponics, shadehouses and cargo containers, while an organic composting program ensures a healthy harvest throughout South Florida’s extended growing seasons.
Currently, production includes microgreens, microherbs, petite greens, heirloom tomatoes and lettuces, amongst many other tropical fruits and vegetables, many of which are available to consumers directly via affordable CSA shares.
