About Endless Sun
From the kitchens of James Beard Award Winning Chefs to local farmers markets — and even major breweries — Endless Sun Farms has established itself as a staple in Raleigh-Durham’s blossoming food scene.
We’re combatting growing environmental concerns and declining food quality with commercial-scale hydroponic greenhouses. These enable us to produce the highest quality vegetables in urban areas where conditions aren’t typically favorable for farming.
This hyper-local and sustainable approach to agriculture helps us preserve our planet’s precious resources. Our downtown Raleigh location allows us to provide fresh, local produce to our customers.
Our produce is sold with the roots attached so it stays fresher, longer. Our produce often gets into your hands the day we harvest.
This “king of herbs” has been cultivated for more than 5,000 years and is treasured for its aromatic qualities. Grown hydroponically and without harmful chemicals, our basil is a cleaner and fresher alternative that requires less washing while intact roots help extend shelf life.
From Butterhead to our Baby Leaf Blend, lettuces are one of our most popular offerings and can be found everywhere from farmers markets to the Triangle’s highest-rated restaurants. Our scientific approach to plant nutrition means flavor is never compromised and quality is always consistent.
Small, succulent and serving up powerful flavor — our microgreens are available year-round to transform your marquee dishes from everyday to gourmet. A quick growing cycle contributes to constant freshness while a protected environment means a high-quality, clean product in a compact, yet highly nutritious package.
Unsatisfied with grocery shelves stocked with “fresh” lettuces shipped from across the country, Raleigh-natives and long-time pals Chase Werner and Matt Spitzer developed a vision for locally, sustainably grown produce that could be available all year long.
This vision has become a reality and the two childhood friends have grown their hydroponic operations from their own backyards to yours — serving up nearly 20 years of horticulture and business experience all within throwing distance of downtown Raleigh’s urban landscape.
Chase and Matt cannot thank Raleigh City Farm enough for supporting their mission. The nonprofit provides valuable opportunities for urban farms and farm entrepreneurs to strengthen sustainable, healthy food systems within concrete constraints. Endless Sun Farms was one of the first to partner with Raleigh City Farm and continues to run on the same principles — love for local produce and the planet — and we hope that passion shines through with every basil plant and head of lettuce we grow.
Endless Sun Farms operates two commercial-scale hydroponic greenhouses in the heart of Raleigh, North Carolina to ensure close proximity to our customers. These automated greenhouses combine a scientific approach to customized plant nutrition with integrated pest management and organic control methods so quality is never compromised.
Through our greenhouses, we’re able to support year-round production of your favorite products while our hydroponic model means only a fraction of water is used compared to traditional soil-based farming techniques. Additionally, our hydroponic farms emit zero harmful runoff to help preserve the urban areas in which we operate, and we harvest rainwater whenever possible so we can pass the savings onto our customers.
The success of our innovative urban agriculture model is creating waves across the state and we’re currently partnered with some of the largest universities (including NC State’s renowned College of Agriculture and Life Sciences) to share our research and knowledge with some of the brightest minds fighting global food scarcity and ecological decline.
