US (NY): 2-Michelin star restaurant gets vertical farm
The new 1,200 square-foot farm uses hydroponics (growing plants in a water-based nutrient solution, instead of soil) and efficient new LED lights to grow rare produce in a controlled environment, year-round. Farm.One grows over 500 different products, including sour, tangy Wood Sorrel Flowers, spicy red Mizuna microgreens, and a nutty “Dragon’s Tongue” Arugula.

This is Farm.One’s second farm in Manhattan, after its initial launch at the Institute of Culinary Education in April 2016. The company grows produce completely pesticide-free, and delivers only to restaurants in Manhattan and Brooklyn, via bike and subway, eliminating food miles. Farm.One’s proprietary software allows the team to manage hundreds of products and thousands of batches, all grown to order for chefs. The company’s packaging is reusable, minimizing waste.
Atera had a small farm underneath its restaurant in the past, but this new farm run by Farm.One is multiple times larger, capable of growing over 1,000lb of produce and serving up to 50 restaurant customers. Farm.One’s other customers include restaurants Daniel, Jungsik, Le Turtle, L’Appart, Butter, Uchu and many other Michelin-star rated restaurants.
Farm.One CEO Rob Laing explains “Farming indoors in Manhattan allows us to deliver a huge range of rare produce for the most demanding chefs within a few hours of harvest, year-round. Our location eliminates waste and provides a fresher, better product. High-tech vertical farming doesn’t have to be about the same old leafy greens, it can be about excitement and delight.”
Ronny Emborg, Executive Chef of Atera, noted “In Denmark it was possible to step out the kitchen door and forage for beautiful ingredients. To have Farm.One in New York, just a few steps away from our kitchen gives us access to a huge range of rare ingredients, year-round. Stepping into the farm is happiness.”
