GROW YOUR OPERATIONS

The Leafy Green Machine™ allows you to extend your season—and of course, your income—into the full calendar year. Our soil farmers always appreciate conveniences like harvesting upright, forgetting about weeds, avoiding pests, and many more.

Redefine Your Growing Cycle

With the Leafy Green Machine™, it’s always growing season! Grow and sell leafy greens 365 days a year without fear of unexpected frosts, droughts, or even hurricanes. The LGM™ provides a stable base income, allowing more flexibility elsewhere in your business.

Optimize Your Farm

Even the most efficient farms tend to have a bit of unproductive square footage. The LGM™ is a simple way to transform that land into a high-efficiency growth space. All you need is a 50’x10’ plot to grow an additional 2–4 tons of produce per year.

Enjoy Vertical Farming

Studies show, 26% of farmers and ranchers experience chronic back pain, commonly caused by forceful exertions, stooping, and continuous bending. By farming in the LGM™, you can avoid all of these stressors: Our lightweight crop columns attach and detach easily, while planting and harvesting is all performed on the
waist-high worktable.

Grow More Money Makers

As the name suggests, the Leafy Green Machine™ is optimized to grow leafy greens. While all greens can be profitable, those grown inside the LGM™ are clean, pesticide-free, and available year-round in any climate. These factors help many of our farmers command premium prices.

From seed to harvest 

 

Our hydroponic growing system allows you to go from seed to harvest in 4-6 weeks. By staggering your growing operations, you can enjoy 52 harvests a year. 

 
 
 
 

Seeds are planted on a custom-designed aluminum workstation with an integrated hydroponic setup outfitted with 3,600 seedling sitesebb and flow irrigation, and LED lighting systems. After germination, seedlings are transferred to the farm's vertical towers. The towers have 4,300 mature plant sites where plants are nurtured by an overhead drip irrigation system and strip LED lighting.
