What We Do

The way of farming as we know it is changing.

We grow locally, sustainable, zero pesticides greens that are blockchain tracked from seed to sale in proprietary, closed-loop, state-of-the-art vertical farming facilities. Our facilities enable us to create ideal growing conditions for our plants, providing them with precisely what they need at the right time with zero contamination. The result is a predictable, quality product that consistently looks and tastes fantastic, 365 days a year, no matter the geographic location nor outside environmental conditions.

How We
Do It

The Magic

Our state-of-the-art facilities combine proprietary LED light technology, photobiology, and robotic automation to create a farming system that redefines traditional approaches. The technology behind our facilities is based on 26 years of academic research and a combination of scientific disciplines working at the forefront of their respective fields. This research has not only lead to efficient automation but has also allowed us to optimize production of any plant by manipulating various environments to direct the plants morphological growth towards maximizing yield.

Scaled Efficiency

Our technology enables us to achieve staggering numbers in efficiency with regards to land and water conservation, labour savings and crop yields. Blockchain allows us traceability on each and every product from seed to sale. Through our advanced tech, we’re also able to set up and quickly scale operations to grow commercial quantities of greens in locations where traditional agriculture isn’t feasible.

26 years of research
73% higher capacity than our competitors
80% less labour than a traditional farm
100% traceability via blockchain technology
