Vertical Harvest has come so far since the seed of an idea in 2008. Today, we are building a company that grows best-in-class produce that maximizes taste, nutrition, and reliability for our customers and communities. We are doing this by being smarter, greener and more equitable than traditional agriculture has ever been able to be.

Caroline and I sat down recently with the Vertical Farming Podcast to share our journey from unexpected farmers to leaders of a fast-moving organization on the precipice of strengthening local food and job security in communities nationwide.

Hear the full story of how Vertical Harvest started, why we believe vertical farming must be a movement, what we are doing to turn the challenges of the industry into opportunities…and when Caroline and I decided to dive in and take on this wild and ambitious endeavor.

As I said in the podcast, “When it was just about food, I was like, ‘This is a cool idea. I’m excited to be a part of it.’ But when it was about food and futures, something that is so personal to me and to so many people in our country, it really became a must. It wasn’t an option anymore; we had to follow through with it.”

We share all that and more on the Vertical Farming Podcast with Harry Duran. Click and listen!
