Fresh Produce and Sustainable Agriculture

Fresh produce and sustainable agriculture go hand-in-hand.

When you eat crisp, great-tasting fruits and vegetables, the last things you want to think about are:

Unfortunately, many of the fruits and vegetables we consume travel a great distance to get to our plates. This is due to the inefficiencies of the global distribution system.

At NuLeaf Farms, we believe fresh produce should be:

Imagine eating sweet, fresh basil in the middle of winter… summertime freshness in January!

Imagine eating food grown using sustainable agriculture methods. Delivered from plant-to-plate in only a few hours using as little water, land, and energy as possible. Crops grown from carefully selected seeds without the use of pesticides in a precisely controlled environment.

It is possible with NuLeaf’s advanced indoor vertical farming technology. We engineered a system around the principles of plant science and controlled environment agriculture (CEA).

Mother Nature at Her Best

What is Plant Science?

The success of any plant is based on its growing conditions. Plant science is the process of understanding how to control those conditions to maximize growth and nutrition.

With outdoor crops, yields can be inconsistent and some years are better than others. Natural conditions like sunlight, soil nutrients, available moisture, and air quality are always changing.

NuLeaf’s enclosed hydroponic grow rooms control these conditions with precision.

Plant Science

Our system also monitors and analyzes the data in real-time. Each room’s controlled growing environment is specifically optimized for its crop.

Controlled Environment Agriculture

The NuLeaf indoor farming system takes a modularized approach to CEA. We segregate the controlled environments within a remotely-operated indoor farming network. This allows our distributed farming system to efficiently grow a wide range of high-yield crops at various locations.

The results include greater production volumes of nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables. Our indoor farming system also reduces costs and GHG emissions compared to traditional models that require flying and/or trucking produce in from other regions.

Crop Selection

A Wide Range of Great-Tasting Produce

NuLeaf’s indoor farming system can grow a wide variety of crops, including: 

  • Lettuce (Buttercrunch, Black Simpson, Red Loose Leaf, etc.)
  • Kales (Darkibor, Red Russian, Black Magic, Blue Scotch, etc.) 
  • Mustard Greens
  • Spinaches

It All Starts With A Premium Seed

Seedling Process

All crops grown within a NuLeaf indoor farm begin with carefully selected premium seeds. Germination takes place outside of the controlled growing environments using a dedicated system.

To ensure plant success, our trained operators transplant the seedlings into the growing environments once the plants reach the appropriate size to warrant viable plant health and growth within the environment.
