Zero Carbon Farms
An AgTech company that builds and operates Controlled Environment Farms, providing a future-proof and sustainable solution for growing.
Our farms offer an innovative, technologically-driven approach to growing. We have complete and real-time control over our growing environment, ensuring that every day is the perfect summer’s day. We keep our crops snug and warm within our protected environment; they are never rained on, trampled by welly boots, or eaten by pigeons. We don’t require any pesticide or use any nasty chemicals.
Our farms use up to 90% less water and a fraction of the space compared to conventional farming. Owing to proprietary data, every m2 of a ZCF farm is significantly more productive than 1m2 of traditional farm land. This means we can grow more in less space and operate within dense urban areas which brings down our food miles and in turn reduces our carbon footprint.
Our first working farm is in Clapham, London, in a disused air raid shelter some 33 metres underground. From here we have been supplying retail and restaurants for the past five years. As we expanded our capacity to reach this milestone, we made the necessary technical, biosecurity and HR improvements to become BRC, Red Tractor and Field to Fork certified, allowing us to stock many of the UK’s major retailers, including Marks & Spencer, Waitrose and Ocado.
