In the new edition of Scottish Field, Louise Gray visits the world’s most technically advanced vertical farm, which is in Dundee.
In the final column in her series on fruit and vegetables, she asks if this is the future of food.
"It is blowing a hoolie outside and usually I would be knee-deep in mud on a farm visit, but this is not just any farm, this is the farm of the future. I am warm and dry, in a relatively sterile atmosphere and all I can hear is the gentle whir of computers. There are plants all around me but not a lump of soil.
"Trays of micro-herbs are stacked three stories high and bathed in a spectrum of red, blue, purple and pink LED lights.
"It feels like I have stepped into a sci-fi movie, not a warehouse just outside a suburb of Dundee."
