Vertical Farming Is Going To Change EVERYTHING.. Here’s How

Welcome back to Down On The Farm, today on the channel we are going to talk about Vertical farming is filling an urgent need. This industry segment is all very promising, but how far can vertical farming go?
Mike Zelkind, CEO of 80 Acres Farms, Hamilton, OH, says there’s a critical need to find more efficient ways to feed humanity in a sustainable, scalable manner. While traditionally grown produce can travel a thousand or more miles between farm and supermarket, he argues that vertical farm-produced items are always market fresh.

“Our simplified supply chain closes the gap between grower and grocer,” he insists. “It’s less vulnerable to extreme weather, natural disasters, and other disruptive events. “Vertical farming is a proven way to grow consistent, high-quality produce year-round, anywhere,” Zelkind states. “Be that in the heart of a city or in the desert, we can deliver the same results.” “It’s no surprise business leaders, retailers, and entrepreneurs are becoming interested,” he continues, “and as vertical farms like ours continue to grow, the proposition will become even more interesting.” Katie Seawell, chief commercial officer for Bowery Farming, Inc., a New York City-based startup, says vertical farming offers a suite of benefits for a world with a growing population.
“We’re hugely efficient with space and can grow on non arable land, while there are real advantages on the waterfront,” she adds. More about Vertical farming is filling an urgent need when you finish this video.
