What is vertical farming?

Vertical Farming refers to farming in many levels stacked vertically to maximize the amount of produce that can be grown in one area. Learn more at www.aerofarms.com.

Don’t plants need sun?

In fact, no. Plants don’t need sun, they need particular combinations of the sunlight’s spectrum – certain frequencies of light. By providing just the frequencies they need, using LED lights, the plant grows more efficiently. We also use spectrum to adjust aspects like color, flavor, and texture.

Don’t plants need soil?

They don’t actually. Plants need water and nutrients – which are traditionally stored and provided by soil. As commercial agriculture has strained to produce enough food for our growing population, the soil has become taxed to the point of becoming toxic in some cases. We use a post-consumer recycled, reusable cloth to hold the greens and separate the leaves from the roots. Then we create a mist environment consisting of water and nutrients – misting exactly what the plants need when they need it. Then we filter and recirculate the water and nutrient solution. Our plants receive all the benefits of soil, with none of the risk.

Food Safety

How are Dream Greens safer than the average packaged salad?

Dream Greens grow indoors in a completely controlled environment with no pesticides. They are tended and harvested with care by trained Dream Team members who wear clean gear including hairnets and gloves. Nothing is ever sprayed on our Greens so they do not need to be washed by us or you.

Do I need to wash Dream Greens?

Our greens are clean and ready to eat, so no washing is necessary.  Nothing is ever sprayed on our greens and they are carefully handled by trained Dream Team members with clean gear like hairnets and gloves in a temperature controlled indoor farm.  No washing means better taste, quality and convenience for you!

Does Dream Greens use pesticides?

You only need to use pesticides if you have pests. Every aspect of our operation is optimized to ensure that pest life cycles never get started. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is built into our design and methods so that we will never need to use pesticides.
