Who We Are
We are a DC based vertical farm with a mission of transforming the way produce is grown and distributed.
Food insecurity in urban America. Feedback loops between climate change and traditional methods of agriculture. Unused building staining city neighborhoods.
Locals sits at the intersection of these three daunting problems. We envision an end to food deserts,the dawn of an agricultural practice that actually mitigates climate change, and a new use for the unused buildings. But how? Our mission is to transform the way food is grown and distributed.
Real food grown in the city for the city!
We grow and deliver high-quality,organic produce to local food businesses and consumers. By combining indoor vertical farming with precision agriculture technology,we're able to maximize productivity,minimize waste, and ultimately provide produce that is more affordable and more readily available than any competitor on the market today.
By housing our farm operations in unused building,we breathe new life into these urban spaces and new life into the neighborhood surrounding.
By integrating precision agriculture technology with our farming operations--mainly, sophisticated sensors, real-time data analysis, and machine learning--,we drastically reduce the amount of natural resources needed for production. Eventually our goal is for our farming operations to be completely net-zero.
By placing operations in the heart of American cities, our more affordable and more readily available hyper local produce doesn't sit in a refrigerated truck for days and allow for the freshest produce possible. Our supply chain is truly local.
Ultimately, Locals is better for your environment, your neighborhood, and your health.
