UrbanLeaf Farms is one of those stories of a couple guys who lived the corporate rate race most of their lives who were looking to do something different; something interesting that could impact the community and maybe improve people’s lives.
It started one day after getting together and the topic of indoor and vertical farming came up. Pretty cool concept we thought. The idea of being able to produce crops all year round in virtually any climate including one like ours (we live in the great white north …. Alberta, Canada) was incredibly intriguing. Added to that the world has really embraced organic and local food production so we thought there might be a really opportunity to do something innovative that benefits the consumers of our products. So we investigated even deeper and when we saw an opportunity to also leverage our expertise in technology to this opportunity, our interest peaked even more.
See indoor and vertical farming are part of what is called controlled environment agriculture which in simple terms means bringing technology, automation and Mother Nature to a plant growing dance. Imagine being able to give a plant just the right amount of food (nutrients, water) and the best possible growing environment (light, temperature, humidity); you might just be able to produce the most nutritious and best tasting product available. That’s what we thought.
So we ran with it and now ULF (that’s what we like to call it) is here.
Today we are growing our plants as ingredients in our SuperShots. Our first product is 100% pure organic wheatgrass – one of Mother Nature’s truly green superfoods. One ounce of health inducing, energy pumping pure goodness. As we bring this SuperShot to our local and regional markets we are also developing future SuperShot products based on other natural and organic superfoods like Ginger and Turmeric.
