Sixty years ago, if you would have told farmers that one day, tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers would be grown indoors, without soil, and grown all around the world, year round, they would have called you crazy. And along came greenhouses.
Fast forward to today, the technology now exists to grow another slice of the produce the world needs, 12 months a year, anywhere on earth, and more reliably than ever. Developed in Langley, patented globally, CubicFarms technology allows automated, commercial scale and virtually foolproof growing of hundreds of crops, using very little water, energy, labour and zero pesticides.
