You may have heard of corn that will be knee-high by the fourth of July, but this New Jersey farm has greater expectations. AeroFarms, located in Newark, New Jersey, is in the process of redefining agriculture.
The basis of AeroFarms is to bring fresh and healthy fruits and vegetables to cities that might not have the agricultural means for traditional farming. These farms tower over 30 feet high and specialize in aeroponic technology.
