Inside AeroFarms, the world’s largest vertical farm
A sustainable indoor agriculture company is on a mission to transform eating habits and provide communities with safe and nutritious food. Here’s a look inside the world’s largest vertical farm.
AeroFarms grows vegetables with no sun and no soil. They look to address the issue of food deserts by building smaller replica, vertical farms inside of schools, senior centers and other municipal buildings.
AeroFarms uses 95 percent less water to grow their crop in just 14 days, as opposed to 30-40 days in the field. They also can turn their crop 27 times a year, instead of 3.
In New Jersey, the amount of food AeroFarms can grow in one acre would take 30 acres of outdoor land.
