John McCarthy

John was the original owner of Las Vegas Herbs LLC, a Nevada based greenhouse operation specializing in microgreens production servicing fine dining restaurants in all the top casinos on the Strip.  In the initial start-up stage of the company, John offered trays of "living" microgreens to chefs with the result that it became the farm's hallmark product, which to this day represents about 90% of the farm's sales.

Hydroponic vs Organic

There is no commercially recognized category for hydroponically grown food. Organic produce is grown in soil.  Hydroponic produce is grown in water or a soilless medium such as coconut coir.  Because it is not prone to the various potential infestations resulting from soil-grown food, we simply call it "Beyond Organics!"
