AeroFarmtm LGA

Our sector is horticulture within urban agriculture. We design and manufacture machinery to grow leafy greens aeroponically on a commercial scale. Our machines are modular allowing them to fill underutilized warehouse type space. A patent pending cloth medium supports low cost and semi-automated growing and handling. Research into plant required light characteristics reduces energy consumption allowing a reasonable ROI. Customers will address the $4 billion salad market with our addressable market near $1 billion.
