Fischer Farms is creating a revolution in farming with its scalable, next generation, ‘Vertical Farms’. These are closed systems using an energy-efficient, LED-based lighting system to produce crops of the highest quality: leafy greens are grown in trays racked over many levels high and harvested via a highly-automated process. Fischer Farms grows a wide range of short leaf products including lettuce, rocket, watercress, chard, basil, dill and parsley. Our purpose built ground breaking environment will be powered by 100% green energy and we are working towards operating 365 days a year using only sustainable energy sources and providing yields 250 times greater than conventional farming.
In the next decade we are aiming for some of the world’s least sustainable foods to be grown at scale. Our goal is to produce soya beans, rice, and wheat in significant volumes, at price points that compare favourably to global commodity prices.
