Hello and welcome to the new age of Agricultural production and processing.
Vertical, Indoor, Hydroponic Farming has become the latest fad in the agricultural arena with venture capital making substantial investments in companies claiming to have unlocked the code of indoor farming for high profits.
Co-founder David Scranton and I began our journey into controlled environmental agriculture (CEA) in 2008 with the goal in mind to be the leader in Agricultural Replacement Methodologies. To deliver the lowest cost per square foot while providing the highest footprint yield by maximizing horizontal compression and vertical density. To be a single-source grower and processor of Fresh Cut Produce, Raw Agricultural Commodities and Ready-To-Eat leafy salad greens.
We no longer want to “ADAPT” technology to agriculture we want to “REPLACE” 10 thousand years of agriculture practices with designs and methodologies that can provide commodity level volumes to the market at costs that are below traditional soil based practices.
Designs that remove human contact from the product until consumed. Processes and methodologies that extend the native growing range into all regions of the planet and into space, our next frontier.
Increase the crop harvest frequency from four times to fourteen+ times per year. Reduce crop loss risk by eliminating the challenges of Mother Nature; decrease the cost of fertilizer, water, equipment, facilities, labor and eliminate aerosol pesticides, insecticides and foreign surfactants. Create Market Stability with sustainable year round supply of products.
As with most startups with a new idea our first research and testing facility was a one car garage where we would build and test each new idea and then discard it for not meeting our primary goals.
We are now in our new 10,000 SF facility in Flat Rock, NC, building out our latest designs for commercial production to validate the results of our research and testing back in our little one car garage. To prove the scalability of our design while maximizing horizontal compression and vertical density.
Once production at our 10K facility has commenced we plan to begin construction on our expansion facility of 200,000 SF on property we have secured also in Flat Rock, NC.
Come join us on our journey around the globe and beyond by becoming a part of new age of Agricultural production and processing.
