We were delighted to welcome Anna Hill from BBC Radio 4’s Farming Today programme to our new site in Norfolk recently. It was great to show her how construction is coming along and share our plans for changing the face of the food production industry across the world.
Our new farm is set to be the largest vertical farm in the world. It will offer 25,000 m2 of vertically stacked growing space, providing the capacity to supply 6.5 tonnes of leaf salad, leafy herbs, and other fresh produce to UK supermarkets every day.
By maximising the use of land, the 4-acre vertical farm will be able to grow the same amount of food as 1,000 acres of conventional British farmland. It uses up to 98% less water, without using pesticides, herbicides, or insecticides, and with no impact on the surrounding countryside.
Powered by 100% renewable energy, the revolutionary vertical farm will produce the freshest, longest lasting, safest, most consistent, and highest quality British-grown produce all year round.
