Our approach

How we grow

Vertical layers

Growing on stacked layers increases the amount of food that can be grown per m2 by up to 100x.

Our first farm in Scunthorpe has 17x layers, the most of any farm in Europe.

LED lighting

Our state of the art lighting technology, in partnership GE Current gives our plants the precise light spectra they require for growth.

This improves yield, taste and quality.

Water usage

We have built and installed our unique water system which allows us to re-use each litre of water up to 30x.

In total this reduces our water usage by 90% compared to an outdoor farm.

Clean growth

Bringing growth indoors removes the need for using dangerous chemical pesticides and herbicides.

Our farms are ultra high-care facilities.
