Exotic specialties & homestead staples, grown in collaboration with chefs.
Cultivated in the heart of Columbus and delivered hours after harvest.
Consistent quality regardless of season or the plant’s native habitat.
Less waste, less water use, no pesticides and vastly reduced supply chains.
We are committed to quality in our plants.
From microgreens to flowers. Domestic fundamentals needed in every restaurant, to ethnic specialties which help international restaurants capture the taste of home. No matter what we grow, we obsess over every leaf and shoot.
This is what it means to be Artisan.
We master a grow, and then explore another. Mushrooms are next - look for them later this year!
We are able to grow in a more confined space because we grow our plants above each other. Increasing the amount of food produced per square foot.
Eliminating the variables the outdoors brings we are able to produce food at a higher quality more consistently throughout the year. We don't need to stop for the Midwestern snow!
Indoor growing in a hyper controlled environment eliminates the need for harmful pesticides. Meaning all food produced is ready to eat when harvesting comes.
90%+ Reduction in Water
Water is recycled though the system allowing the plants to take only what they need.
We are a hydroponic farm growing ethnic, exotic, artisanal ingredients from around the world, right here in Columbus, OH. We are proud to partner with local restaurants and distributors.
The Artisans: James Hu and Andrew Herczak
OSU graduates. Varsity athletes. Business & bio fanatics.
We founded Columbus Artisan Growers in 2019, straight out of college, driven by a mutual passion for food and technology.
We’re a small team, but it doesn’t feel that way.
The Columbus community is our real team. We’re surrounded by chefs, engineers, students and foodies - the support of our fellow Buckeyes has been amazing, especially in this difficult period of pandemic.
This is why we established the company in our college town - we have fallen in love with the people and the camaraderie. We hope to be part of the comeback and to make the culinary scene better than ever!
Our newly-renovated, FSMA-certified farm is located minutes away from Downtown Columbus.
10 min from Downtown Columbus
