This week on The Farm Report, we bring you a special field piece recorded at AeroFarms in Newark, New Jersey.
Vertical farming is the practice of producing food in vertically stacked layers, vertically inclined surfaces and/or integrated in other structures, and AeroFarms is the largest vertical farm in the world. Their state-of-the-art aeroponic growing system uses a patented technology that allows us to grow food indoors without sun or soil, using 95% less water than in the field.
Tune in for a tour of their Newark Farm facility, a 30,000 square foot former paintball and laser tag arena.
