GoSpiral Farms is small family farm owned and operated by the Cathcart Family. We are the first Certified Producers of Spirulina as a food in the State of California. We’re committed to producing Fresh Spirulina which is absolutely the freshest possible and of the very highest purity and quality. Instead of the typical tablet form you’ll find on the market, we provide our organic product ready to consume and incorporate into meals, drinks or on its own for immediate benefit.
Our Farm and Hydroponic Process
Our farm is located in Vista, CA on an old avocado grove. The climate perfect for growing California avocados is also perfect for growing Spirulina. We are at about 500 ft. elevation and 10 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. This allows our closed loop reactors to produce an abundant crop year round. Compared apples produce that 24,000 lb./acre per year, we yield approximately 500,000 lb./acre per year. Our culture is water recycled and therefore our farm uses very little water for cleaning, rinsing and cooling. We utilize 100% of our nutrients as none are lost due to run off as in traditional agriculture. Our operation requires highly skilled and trained farm workers due to technical nature of our process.
For purity, safety, and wholesomeness our Fresh Spirulina is cultivated in a closed hydroponic growth system. This system is the result of ten years of research and development.
The benefits of our technology include:
- Provision of the best tasting, highest quality Spirulina on the market
- Free of pesticides, herbicides, and preservatives
- Conservation of water resources through nominal use
- Good stewards of the land and sustainably grown
- Maximum productivity
- Provides skilled jobs in the agricultural sector
Our Vision for GoSpiral Farms
Fresh Spirulina as an everyday food is our vision. We will continue to develop innovative growing and processing techniques, which will improve product quality and cost. We desire a company where our employees thrive and are successful. It is also our vision to be a part of a greater movement; one that works to ensure there is a habitable and sustainable world for our children and their children for years to come.
