Our vertical propagation units can save you space and speed up propagation time and quality while the larger V-farm units are ideal for growers wanting to invest in indoor growing solutions to extend production periods, supplying supermarkets or food processors with microgreens, fresh salads, herbs or specialist high value crops. Our systems are fully modular to grow with your business and market demand and as they have full environmental control, can be easily adapted to different crops to adapt to seasonal market fluctuations. Having produce at the right time and in the right place is crucial for any modern business which is why we have made the V-Farm extremely flexible. Switch between crops with minimal expense and effort and grow multiple variants all at one time.
The V-Farm system is very flexible. Being modular it can grow with your business and fit into disused infrastructure where grant aid may be accessible to develop your farm. Our growing method is clean and controllable offering your crops full tractability. Optimised environmental control through leaf and root delivers faster growth rates and the same constant high quality, crop after crop.
The biggest problem with indoor farming is the initial set up cost and increased overhead of power and property taxes (if in cities). Return on investment is at the centre of the V-Farm philosophy which is why our model maximises all available space you have and with the lowest available running costs. We have designed it to fit easily into multi floor traditional buildings that you may be able to get grant support on or work with local authorities in inner-city projects for subsidised rates.

Another way to maximise profitability and accelerate payback is to create a food brand and sell ‘local’, charging a premium for fresh and/or, living produce. Then to assist marketing, make your products more traceable and your production facilities more visible. Offer farm tours and tie ins with local schools. The simple nature of V-Farm vertical growing and the technical nature of our products offers another great marketing angle and added value as it can be grown in the city and with no pesticides or herbicides.
“The V-Farm mini is the next step in urban farming. it provides an exceptionally compact, highly productive system using leading led technology. this system can transform small, underused urban spaces into the farms of the future. HydroGarden’s V-Farm is allowing us to develop our farms at a rate that wouldn’t be possible with any other system or technology currently available to us.”
