Our founders, Mike and Tisha, knew that food wasn’t what it used to be. They wanted to make it better—and they did it by creating a new kind of farm. One capable of producing an abundance of crop varieties year-round. Completely indoors. Using 100% renewable energy. Without any pesticides or excessive food miles. Big vision, right? Well, they did it.
And they called it 80 Acres Farm
Our name tells a story about the amount of food we can grow, not the amount of land we used to grow it. Our first farm was only a quarter acre, but using super-efficient vertical farming techniques, it could grow as much food as eighty acres of traditional farmland, give or take a few pounds. Our new farms can produce much more, but our name guarantees we’ll never lose touch with our roots.
We want to do better for the planet. That’s why we created a more sustainable way to farm in the first place—using 100% renewable energy and 95% less water than a traditional farm producing a similar quantity of produce, and growing up to 300 times more food per square foot.
On our farms, we keep it clean. In fact, our produce is so clean that it passes one of the world’s most rigorous safety checks. Our totally controlled indoor farms and industry-leading food safety practices allow us to meet kosher standards—another example of our commitment to quality.
