Indoor vertical farming is a growing technique where you make sure to use the height of the space where you are growing in order to get bigger harvests. We for example, grow in trays stacked on top of each other in a big shelf-like structure.
This way we get lots of food even if we use small spaces. That is why vertical farming is a good alternative for unused spaces in urban areas - exactly like our underground farm deep down in the caves of Liljeholmen, in central Stockholm.
Since we grow below ground, we replace the sun (and the absence of sun) with LED lights. And we don't use any soil. Instead, we use a hydroponic system that saves us 90% in water use compared to outdoor farming. Actually, the only water we loose is going right into the plant you eat. Yum!
No soil and no pesticides. Here, our plants sit in a floating raft, heading for the journey of their lives.
With our tailor made recipes on light, air flow and nutrients, there's nothing stopping our plants to show what they where truly ment to be. Tasteful.
Since we grow where people live we avoid long-distance transports. To us, it seems unnecessary to import leafy greens from south of Europe when we can grow our own close to home.
We grow in a completely closed system so there is no use for pesticides or other protective substances. It is just so much nicer to skip using chemicals on things we are going to eat.
We harvest when the plants are at their absolute best. And we work hard to make sure our greens reach the stores in no time. Because let’s admit it - sallad does taste best when it is super fresh. Going down to your local store should be like taking a stroll in your own garden.
Underneath our wonderful city there is no bad weather, no dry seasons or heavy winds. This gives us a constant harvest of high quality greens all year round.
Right now we are closed to visitors due to the pandemic and current restrictions. However you are more than welcome to contact us anyways - one day we will wake up and find that this is over and then we are more than happy to show you around. Stay safe!
