Rethinking Farms: Hyperlocal Urban Food Production

Rethinking Farms: Hyperlocal Urban Food Production

Urban Harvest, located in Seattle, is out to change the traditional definition of a farm. In today's agricultural economy, the average fruit, vegetable or herb can travel hundreds of miles to reach the consumer — contributing to carbon emissions, unnecessary water usage and pollution, and lower return on investment for both farmers and consumers. Urban Harvest's produce travels on average 5-10 miles and is grown in urban farms within warehouses or on rooftops. Their mission is to bring the farms to the people and make healthful local produce available to all.
