BrightFarm Systems was commissioned to design and install a demonstration scale, sustainable urban greenhouse for a new Whole Foods Market store in Millburn, New Jersey.

Sustainable Agriculture and Wise Environmental Practices are two core values of Whole Foods Market. They are also significant supporters of local farmers in the Northeast region and beyond.

The demonstration scale greenhouse system was designed to allow for on site production of high quality, fresh herbs for use in Whole Foods prepared food services as well as for general sale.

Central to the BrightFarm Systems design was EzGro with the application of modern, water efficient, recirculating hydroponics. In this instance, lines of vertical growing towers were deployed along the window frontage, to make best use of the available light
