The Future Of Farming

Picture your life 30 years from now. How are you getting around? Maybe instead of sitting in traffic for 30 minutes, you’ll use that time to commute 300 miles in a pod. Maybe you’ll take your kids to school in a self-driving car. Even if commuting pods and driverless cars are the norm in 30 years, the technology will still be evolving.

What about how you’ll eat in 30 years? We’re not just talking about how you’ll earn money to put food on the table. Where will the food on your table actually come from?

What we consume — and how we are able to consume it — is rapidly changing. 200 years ago, more than half of the U.S. population lived on farms and produced their own food. Now, about 2% of the population produces the food the rest of the world consumes. But with the population growing, how are we going to sustainably produce enough healthy food? What does the future of farming even look like?

Well, it looks tall. Because the future of farming is vertical. And it could be coming to a city near you.
