FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

OUR PRODUCTS

A. No, but that’s not a bad thing! We grow our food differently—indoors, using no soil, no pesticides, and 95% less water than conventional farms. We also grow locally, to minimize food miles and maximize flavor. We aren’t certified organic, but we are growing food that’s sustainable, nutritious, and fresh.

A. Yes! Our products and practices meet kosher standards. Our kosher certification is one more way that we convey our promise of exceptionally high-quality food.

A. Nope! We don’t need to. Inside our farms, there are no pesticides, no bugs, no birds—nothing you wouldn’t want touching your food. So your produce stays clean from seed to salad.

A: We know that packaging has a purpose—protecting the plants and reducing food waste. We also know that good planets are hard to come by, which is why our packaging is made from recycled plastic materials and is 100% recyclable. We’re always looking for the best solution for both our plants and our planet, so hang in there as we continue to improve!

A:  Negative! We always use non-GMO seeds. Instead of modifying plants to survive in an uncontrolled environment, we modify the environment so our plants can thrive! We’re cultivating a new status quo and going where no farm has grown before.

A: Nope, but you can find our produce at retailers and restaurants near you! Check out our Find In Store page! Want delivery straight to your door? Try one of our online retail partners.

A: Yes! Check out our careers page for more information.

OUR PROCESS

A: Right now, no. We suspended all tours indefinitely during the pandemic and are currently re-evaluating our tour policy—working on the right balance between welcoming our community in and making sure that our farms stay as clean and safe as possible. Stay tuned for updates!

A: Don’t have a green thumb? No problem! Our sister company, Infinite Acres, can custom design and build farms for customers anywhere in the world. After that, 80 Acres Farms can grow and operate the farm for you. And don’t worry—we don’t bite!

A: We’re always working to eliminate food waste—so when our farms grow too much, we know how to handle it. When there’s extra love to go around, we donate to our favorite organizations to fight food insecurity. Know of an organization in need? Drop us a line.

A: We grow hydroponically, so our plants’ roots hang out in nutrient-rich water—no soil needed. By precisely measuring which nutrients plants are soaking up, we’re able to consume 97% less fertilizer. And what’s even more awesome, we don’t add to agricultural runoff, the number-one polluter of our rivers and streams. We’re changing farming at the roots—literally!

We know that plants need light energy to photosynthesize—but did you know that they really only need the red and blue light spectrums? Our growers create the right light “recipe” for each plant variety, which results in the purple light you see in many of our pictures. That purple light optimizes plant growth, nutrition, and flavor. It’s just another way we’re pioneering fresh food from the seed up.

A: Our farms run on renewable hydroelectric energy, utilizing the power of moving water. We also use LED lights, which are energy efficient and constantly improving. We’re always looking for more ways to minimize our environmental impact.
