UK: OneFarm close to completing vertical farm in Newmarket

A vertical farm in Suffolk is close to completion, say its operators.

The OneFarm development is being created inside a disused warehouse in Newmarket and is set to be one of the largest in the UK.

The 6,400m sq facility will be capable of producing 415 tonnes of food a year. A second phase is set to involve an area of 13,000m sq which would increase the overall farm capacity to 1,000t a year.

Nine-meter-high growing towers will produce a range of vegetables, herbs, and greens on demand to avoid waste and unnecessary harvesting - with agreements in place to supply selected retailers.
