About Hometown Roots

Hometown Roots is a Houston-based farm specializing in culinary herbs and leafy greens. Hometown Roots also provides a unique Concierge Service to customers, and will seek out the exotic, non-GMO heirloom seeds you want, hand crafting custom crops to meet your unique, artisan needs.

It’s not every day you meet a former fire fighter turned farmer. Hometown Roots is led by such a man. Chief Farmer Terry Foster—known as “Foz” by friends and family—spent years battling oil well fires around the world. It was a career that demanded technical expertise, fearlessness and passion.

Foz now applies his grace under pressure to indoor vertical farming. He balances the art and science of seed selection, crop cultivation and timed harvest to grow basil, mint, lettuce and kale to their peak flavor and nutrient density.
