Vertical Farming: The Basics
Vertical farms stack multiple layers to grow plants under LED lights, year-round in controlled conditions.
This creates a number of advantages when growing perishable crops for city populations:
Farm.One: Specialty Vertical Farms
As the only vertical farming company growing 100s of different specialty crops in city centers, Farm.One is constantly innovating above and beyond the basic vertical farming approach. We believe smaller farms in city centers
can provide most or all of the specialty produce for tomorrow's cities.
Farm Management Software
Our software defines all actions on the farm, managing planting, care and harvest of 1000s of batches at any one time.
Our software also manages 'boring' tasks like printing labels, synchronizing with sales and accounting software.
