The Power of Hydroponics
Grow More Food, Use Less Resources
Each Vertical Roots farm container is only 320 square-feet and grows 3,600 plants approximately 15x a year, using zero soil and 95% less water.
Consistent and Reliable, All Year
Our vertical container farms – engineered by AmplifiedAg – are resilient and allow us to grow year-round anywhere in the U.S., regardless of climate, weather, or resources.
Perfect Environment = Quality + Nutrition
AmplifiedAg’s CEA technologies creates optimal growing environments. Our produce receives the exact light, water, and nutrients it needs to grow, resulting in superior quality, flavor and nutrition.
Delivering Fresh Lettuce Fast
Did you know the average head of lettuce travels up to 2,000 miles and up to 3 weeks before it gets to the end consumer?
Vertical Roots farms are located directly at regional food distribution points. This drastically decreases food transportation miles which lowers emissions and increases the nutritional value and shelf life of our produce!
Our farms are located in:
Charleston, SC | Columbia, SC | Atlanta, GA
Raising The Bar For Local Produce
At Vertical Roots, we can’t get enough leafy green goodness. We’re constantly innovating to grow new varieties of lettuce (and other veggies coming soon) that are wildly flavorful and fresh! Juicy, crisp, tender, and sweet, you’ve never tasted greens this good!
We Take Food Safety Seriously
Vertical Roots operates the most advanced food-safe farms in the vertical farming industry. Our farms hold the highest global food safety certifications from the USDA and FDA.
With our segmented farm methodology and smart technology, we have ultimate control and can trace the journey of every head of lettuce from seed-to-market.
