We design, manufacture and operate the world’s most productive indoor modular farming solutions. We believe the key to a more sustainable future requires eliminating supply-chain risks and undoing the commoditization of the food industry. That’s why our Local Roots Family is building a distributed network of cutting-edge farms throughout the world to grow the freshest, healthiest food possible.



We grow only the healthiest, flavor-packed produce.
