BrightFarms designs, finances, builds and operates hydroponic greenhouse farms at or near supermarkets. BrightFarms is a model for the future of local, low-impact farming. Its greenhouses provide sustainable local produce at scale on a year-round basis (spinach, arugula, asian greens, spring mix, kale, baby green blends, basil, and tomatoes). With each BrightFarms greenhouse that is built, permanent green collar jobs are created, food miles are significantly reduced (as compared to long distance produce), and the environmental impact of the food supply chain is vastly improved. Each greenhouse uses, on average, 80 percent less water, 90 percent less land and 95 percent less shipping fuel than conventional produce companies and significantly less energy. All produce is always pesticide-and GMO-free.
