Elevate Farms has commenced operations at its first wholly-owned US farm, located in Orange, New Jersey. The entire Elevate New Jersey facility measures 14,000 square feet (1,300 square meters), which includes 4,750 square feet (441 square meters) of unmanned, fully autonomous grow room space along with processing, packaging, and administration. The farm has the capacity to produce up to 11,000,000 plants, or equal to 500,000 pounds (227,000 kilograms) of plants, annually.
Located only 20 miles from Manhattan, Elevate New Jersey is exceptionally well positioned on the US Eastern Seaboard. Our facility is able to locally supply and distribute food to 19 million people - all within a one-hour drive of the facility.
Elevate Farms is committed to building farms to supply high-quality, locally grown, fresh produce to feed the masses. With plans for expansion in the US, New Zealand, and Central Europe, Elevate Farms will look to become one of the largest producers of leafy greens in the world.
"The entire team has been working relentlessly to bring this latest farm on line. We are extremely pleased with the early results from New Jersey," said Kevin Epp, Chief Operating Officer of Elevate Farms.
"At over 100 pounds per square foot of grow space, Elevate Farms is among the most efficient vertical farms in the world. This latest farm will be supplying high-quality leafy greens directly to wholesale distribution in the North East, a model which we expect to replicate around the world in the near future," said Amin Jadavji, the Chief Executive Officer of Elevate Farms.
