Many countries are venturing into urban agriculture. Therefore, a group of young entrepreneurs decided to produce microgreens. The superfood, which sets itself apart through intense flavors and their striking colors, contains 40 times more nutrients.
The young owners of High Farm noted that their microgreens are grown in a closed-off controlled environment. They are produced in the center of Asunción, Paraguay and therefore, they are highly fresh and local products. High Farm is mainly supplying restaurants, vegetarians, vegans, athletes, or those who are simply looking for fresh and healthy food.
This type of farming aims at sustainable agriculture in the long term by taking into account food and environmental security. The objective of growing in urban cities is to generate more food products in a smaller space but of high quality.
CEA techniques such as vertical farms, greenhouse production and indoor agriculture are developing worldwide. Therefore, the company is driving innovation and is constantly opting for new cultivation spaces. Héctor Sosa, Gabriel Zanotti, Vicente Correa and Adrián Fullaondo, the drivers behind High Farm, want to redefine agriculture, bringing crops from the countryside to the big cities.
