We're Vertical Roots an Indoor Hydroponic Container Farm
Southeast High School Friends Changing the Indoor Container Farming Industry
High school friends Andrew Hare and Matt Daniels had a plan to bring healthy, safe, and local produce to their community in South Carolina. Their plan, which started as scribbles on a napkin in 2015, grew into Vertical Roots: an indoor hydroponic container farming company producing nutrient-dense lettuce with globally recognized food safety standards inside its eco-friendly, upcycled container farms.
Vertical Roots farms use 98% less water than conventional farming methods to produce pesticide-free, non-GMO, flavorful lettuce. Andrew, Matt, and the rest of the Vertical Roots team are deeply rooted in the community, building local partnerships and creating sustainable jobs for farmers while giving back through produce donations to local food banks and farms.
A Team Motivated by Change
Vertical Roots is a one of three companies working together, including Tiger Corner Farms and Boxcar Central. All three companies roll up to our parent company, AmplifiedAg. We are innovating a more powerful and efficient way of farming through state-of-the-art technologies. In doing this, we are engaging a new generation of farmers and providing them with sustainable jobs.
