First look inside pioneering vertical farm which will strengthen UK’s food security  

A first glimpse has been given into a pioneering vertical farm with technology capable of growing high volumes of sustainably produced food and supporting the UK’s drive towards self-sufficiency.

Nine-metre-high growing towers can be found inside the OneFarm development, built in a disused warehouse in Newmarket.

These will produce a range of vegetables, herbs and greens on demand to avoid waste and unnecessary harvesting and there will be agreements in place to supply selected retailers. 

No pesticides will be used to grow the crops and the giant facility represents an agricultural innovation which will complement and boost the region’s traditional farming sector.
