HOW WE GROW

Hyper local. The way it should be.

FOUNDATION FARMS TECHNOLOGY

Each vertical farm is designed by experts in plant health science, system integration, LED lighting technology and indoor farming. This broad range of expertise and a total-systems approach has redefined the E-Farming concept with a focus on optimal plant health and greater yields.

Purpose Built LED's

Customizable, slim profile, 2-sided LEDs are built from decades of research and testing. A lower BTU, or heat signature, means less wasted energy to disperse. Field tests resulting in superior plant flavour and increased plant density mean knowledge and performance beyond PAR.

Real Climate Control

A truly controlled environment results in consistently uniform and productive crop yields. The staged climate control system reduces energy consumption by up to 50%. Air-homogenization delivers the perfect environment at every moment.

Energy Efficient

A hydroponic, closed-loop system uses 95% less water than a typical outdoor farm with similar yields. Energy efficient and adjustable components use less than 30% of the energy of a large soil-based farm with similar yields. Less than 5% crop loss means consistent yields for customers.

Sustainable Farming

Plants hanging in columns are showered with optimal nutrient solution that encourages rapid, healthy growth. In just a few weeks of planting, crops are ready to harvest.

Farms can be set up to grow more than one crop at a time to maximize the variety of leafy greens.
