The UK’s largest vertical farm has been given the go-ahead

The planned vertical farm, which will be operated in Newmarket, Suffolk County, could produce more than 400 tons of food annually.

The plant growing facility will be housed in an abandoned storage building. OneFarm, a sustainable food company, works with IGS Ltd. Ltd., a company specializing in indoor agricultural technology, to create a 6,400-square-foot farm capable of producing 415 tons of food annually. Locally produced vegetables are to be sold, so that locals will have fresh, high-quality food, he writes Farming.

Construction is expected to begin later this year, with nine-meter towers to be installed in the 6,400-square-foot growth area, to which the factories will be added later.

In the second stage, I would like to increase the area to 13,000 square meters, which will raise the annual food production capacity to 1,000 tons.

OneFarm says they are committed to sustainable food production in an environment where pesticides are not required and hope to have a total of 25 similar farms operating in the UK soon.

In pursuit of freshness and best quality, they will primarily grow herbs and salads to avoid unnecessary waste and harvest. Agreements have already been reached with local merchants for this.

The farm is expected to be operational by early 2023.
