Metropolis Farms is the world’s first solar-powered urban vertical farm which will be 100 percent energy-efficient.
Metropolis Farms grows over two million pounds of nutritious produce — without the need for harsh chemicals or animal products.
“I became obsessed with the idea that we could feed ourselves within cities. It started out as a hobby, became an obsession…” says Griffin, president of Metropolis Farms, the first vegan-certified farm of America.
Metropolis Farms prides itself in growing over two million pounds of nutritious produce — without the need for harsh chemicals or animal products. On top of that, the farm uses far less space per square feet at a cost that is less than $2 billion to build.
The company has its own proprietary technology, which helps grow food more effectively and at a higher quality than conventional and organic farms can achieve. Through indoor vertical farming, the produce is not vulnerable to the weather, bugs, heavy metals, blight, and bacterial contaminations that are present in today’s outdoor agriculture.
