World’s biggest indoor vertical farm

AeroFarms aims to grow two million kilos of fresh food per year in its 8,000 square meter facility near New York City. Their all-season growth works with specialized LED lights and climate controls – all without the need for sunlight or soil. “We use aeroponics to mist the roots of our greens with nutrients, water, and oxygen,” explains AeroFarms’ director. “Our system uses 95% less water than field farming, 40% less than hydroponics, and zero pesticides.”

The farm’s proximity to the New York Metropolitan area minimizes transportation costs to this large urban market. AeroFarms has big plans for expansion: “Our passion is great tasting food and sharing our harvest with the world. There is a tremendous demand for our locally grown, delicious produce, and we have farms in development in multiple US states and on four continents. There has never been a greater need for safe, dependable, nutritious food, and we are growing quickly to transform agriculture around the world.”
