The idea to make this business came from Khun Sumonrat Na Thakuotung who wanted her younger brother to have a small family business, so they started with a small farm on the rooftop of their house in Phuket Town. The feedback from customers was very positive and the business grew quickly as more and more people became interested in eating vegetables and salad to give them healthier bodies. At the end of 2014, the family started a second farm in Jormthong Village called the Maneekram Hydro Farm with Mrs.Thanomsak Na Thakuotung in charge, this farm is very clean and has been certified by the Thai Department of Agriculture.
Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture and is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, in water, without soil. Thus the Maneekram Hydro Farm abstains from using chemicals and their produce is clean and fresh when it is transported to market. Hydroponics also saves water; it uses as little as 1/20 the amount as a regular farm to produce the same amount of food.
