AppHarvest is building some of America's largest greenhouses, combining conventional agriculture techniques with today’s technology to grow non-GMO, chemical-free produce. Our first greenhouse in Morehead, Kentucky, will span 60 acres and operate entirely on rainwater using a 10-acre retention pond. By choosing to farm this way, we are able to reduce water usage by 80%.
Our central location in Appalachia is within a day’s drive of 70% of the U.S. population, allowing us to reduce the amount of fuel consumed in transportation by 75%.
And because of saved time and resources, we are able to maintain competitive pricing.
This is Farming Now.
