This philosophy has guided the creation of Fischer Farms.
Water is re-cycled and reused, so ongoing operations use less than 5% of the water required for field-grown crops. In fact, the only water we ‘lose’ is in the cell structure of the plants we sell.
Because of the ‘closed loop’ nature of our facilities, our Vertical Farms have no impact on the surrounding countryside. And our commercial, third-generation facilities are powered by solar energy to minimise their carbon footprint.
And, unlike conventional farming, there is no ‘run-off’ of chemicals into the surrounding environment, no erosion of topsoil and no depletion of aquifers.
Additionally, Vertical Farms can be built on any quality of flat land and can be located close to towns and cities to minimise food miles. This also extends sell-by dates to minimise food waste. The overall impact is enormous: in winter, much of the UK’s fresh produce is imported from Southern Europe or North America – with Vertical Farming, none of this would be necessary.
