FarmedHere to open a 60,000-square-foot vertical indoor farm in Louisville, Kentucky

FarmedHere to open a 60,000-square-foot vertical indoor farm in Louisville, Kentucky

The vertical farm’s modular setup makes it relatively easy for the company to scale up (or down) the size of its farms depending on the location. By comparison, the main indoor farm on Chicago’s south side is approximately 90,000 square feet. FarmedHere touts itself as the “first commercial-scale vertical farm in the country” and if they are able to make good on their promises to expand into 18 states, they’ll set a good example for other communities seeking to make it easier for people to make healthy food choices. Folks in Louisville sure are getting excited about the prospect. Kentucky’s economic development agency is extending tax incentives to make the new facility possible, and Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer is thrilled with the news.
