Monsey, N.Y.-based Evergreen Kosher Market is debuting a 20-foot high “wall farm” enabling customers to see where their fresh-picked produce is grown.
The controlled-environment system uses a proprietary mix of minerals and nutrients in the soil and sensors to monitor, irrigate and fertilize the plants.
It’s an installation from Israel-based Vertical Field, an ag-tech company whose systems require minimal handling and enable year-round small-scale production.
The vertical farming systems yield a new crop every few days, according to the release.
The leafy greens are Star-K kosher certified.
