Indoor Farming Facts

The Indoor Advantage

Our edge comes from bringing together farmers, craftsmen, and software engineers to grow sustainable, safer, and better-tasting greens. Here’s how hydroponic indoor farming is changing the game:

TECHNOLOGY

Our controlled indoor environment protects our crops from bad weather and pests. This means less food waste on farms and more fresh produce for you. 

ZERO

No pesticides or harmful chemicals are used on our lettuces. Our clean greens are non-GMO, with all the nutrients you want and none of the chemicals you don’t.

365 DAYS

Our growing season lasts throughout the year. Through storms or sunshine, winter or summer, our greens thrive can thrive in any area of the world. Take that, climate change. 

98% LESS WATER*

In our soil-free, indoor farms, we can recycle and filter water for responsible resource use. As a plus, we don’t waste water from runoff or excess evaporation from the soil.

LONGER LASTING
