Loren Graber had the idea nearly 25 years ago for a hydroponic greenhouse with vertically grown crops. At the time, he was working on the family dairy farm. When his son Dion was born, milk prices dropped drastically and the farm had to be sold.
He dabbled in several other businesses, but most failed. He now owns several other successful companies, including Digger Specialties Bremen, that helped him begin Micro Farms.
