AeroFarms is an urban agricultural company which provides aeroponic growing system that grow and produce with neither soil or sun in a fully-controlled indoor environment, in any location. It has optimized its patented aeroponic growing system for faster harvest cycles, predictable results, superior food safety and less environmental impact.

This engineered lighting allows to control size, shape, texture, color, flavor, and nutrition with razor-sharp precision and increased productivity.
