Farmed-Here Shuts Down

Hey, many Canadian Growers, including myself have been cynical about. indoor vertical farming,ever since the main-stream media started pushing the technology, as the saviour of our 'broken' traditional agricultural system. Hey, we simply knew that any large warehouse growing business in the Suburbs, would not survive.

"Here Holdings, the parent company of 'Farmed-Here' said high labour and energy costs and competition in the market place caused them to shut down.

I think, that paying $23 million for the warehouse, plus the aquaponic system that provided the crop nutrients, prove to be a very expensive way to grow greens and herbs.
