Food isn’t what it used to be. We made it better, and we did it by building a different kind of farm. A farm that doesn’t need sun, soil, or favorable weather to do its thing. A farm where pesticides have no place—because everything’s indoors, monitored and controlled, twenty-four seven. We built a farm where robots do the heavy lifting, so the humans can focus on growing the freshest, most nutritious food possible. A farm that can produce up to 300 times more food than an ordinary farm. With 100% renewable energy. And 95% less water. Pretty unbelievable, right? Well, believe it. This farm is real. We call it 80 Acres Farms.
We grow better every day. From day one, we’ve had a vision for a different kind of farm—one that can produce more tasty, nutritious food with fewer resources. In our farms, we recycle water and nutrients, collect rainwater for extra hydration, and keep our growing and packaging processes simple to avoid food waste. Then, when we’re ready to ship, we send our produce just down the road, not across the country. We’re continuously improving, but right now, here’s each new farm’s annual impact.
Chances are that most of the produce at your grocery store came from hundreds or thousands of miles away. We’re all for seeing the world, but not in our salad bowls. That’s why we’re building farms that can grow fresh, local produce year-round, sending food to your grocery store in forty-eight hours or less.
Most conventional produce travels through wasteful, complicated supply chains, bouncing from farm to packer to produce truck before ultimately landing on your plate—if it survives the trip. We grow, harvest, and pack under one roof, delivering directly to retailers, which is why our food tastes so fresh and lasts so long in your kitchen.
Right now, agriculture uses more than 70% of the world’s fresh water supply. We can do better. A lot better. Our closed-loop farms use 95% less water than traditional farms, and we keep them so clean that we don’t have to wash our produce and you don’t, either, saving even more water post-harvest.
