Our Hydroponic System
CLOSED ENVIRONMENT AGRICULTURE
Our farm utilizes Closed Environment Agriculture (CEA) to provide ideal growing conditions for our plants year round. CEA gives us complete control of the temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide level, and color of light our plants receive. This allows us to maximize the efficiency of growing, while also creating the most flavorful produce possible. Another advantage of CEA is that it removes the need for large scale use of pesticides, making our produce truly organic.
Our system is designed to grow plants vertically, greatly increasing the amount of growing space. Our farm has the output capacity of a two and a half acre traditional farm all contained in a space the size of a standard shipping container! This vertical design drips water on the plants from above and catches any runoff in troughs under the plants where the water is then recaptured and reused. This along with an HVAC system that collects and reuses ambient humidity, means we use significantly less water than traditional farming methods. Only uses an average of 5 gallons a day!
Our crops are grown under the light of specially designed LED panels. These panels only provide the red and blue light wavelengths that plants absorb the most. This increases the farm efficiency by only providing light that will not be bounced back by the crops, making the plants appear black. The amount of time the lights are on, their intensity, and the ratio of red and blue light can all be set to whatever our crops need.
All of these systems combined creates a farm that can be customized to specific plants. This means we are able to grow a wide variety of plant species. Allowing us to work closely with our restaurant partners to grow whatever they need for them to perfect the menu of their dreams.
