Our Vertical Farms are a tool for introducing children to farming. We connect them to the earth, learn about crop management. We are striving to return this country to the agrarian society it was founded as and we can’t achieve this by excluding the future generation. The crop planting exercise involves getting children outside, under the sun, and in the dirt. It's a beautiful thing.
Your family too can own a Vertical Farm today.
