Responsibly and sustainably feeding humanity by growing flavorful, safe, healthy food in the world's largest indoor vertical farm.

Today, agriculture is responsible for using 70% of the world's water supply. AeroFarms is a high-tech, data-driven vertical farming company revolutionizing global agriculture and drastically reducing the amount of water used. AeroFarms grows delicious, nutritious leafy greens and herbs without sunlight, soil, or pesticides. Their crops receive the perfect amount of moisture and nutrients misted directly onto their roots in a completely controlled environment. Their patented technology takes indoor vertical farming to a new level of precision and productivity with minimal environmental impact: by building farms on major distribution routes and near population centers, AeroFarms is disrupting traditional food supply chains; traditional growing seasons are defied by enabling local farming at commercial scale all year round; and AeroFarms sets a new standard for traceability by managing their greens from seed to package, all while using 95% less water than field-farmed food and with yields 390 times higher per square foot annually. AeroFarms operates the largest vertical farm in the world, and with growing demand, is scaling quickly to develop farms in multiple US states and across the world. AeroFarms has been recognized as a Circular Economy 100 company, was listed on Fast Company’s 2018 global list of Most Innovative Companies and Inc. Magazine’s list of the 25 Most Disruptive Companies. AeroFarms also received the New Jersey Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence and was voted as the Best Growth Company to invest in at the Wall Street Journal’s ECO:nomics conference in addition to being a finalist for The Circular Awards at The World Economic Forum.
