Transform The Way Food Is Grown & Distributed
We grow and deliver high-quality, veganic produce to local food businesses and consumers. By combining indoor veganic vertical farming with precision agriculture technology, we're able to maximize productivity, minimize biological contaminants, maximize produce quality, minimize waste, and ultimately provide produce that is more affordable and more readily available than any competitor on the market today.
Our produce is held to the highest standards and grown with both taste and safety in mind. In viewing and tasting our produce, the labor of love and attention to detail that goes into growing your produce is apparent. 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, taste buds, neighborhood, and health. By housing our farm operations in unused buildings, we breathe new life into urban spaces and surrounding neighborhoods. We envision an end to food deserts, The dawn of an agricultural practice that actually mitigates climate change and a new use for unused spaces.
Our mission is to transform the way food is grown and distributed. 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 and increase consistency of produce quality. We have extensive experience farming with a purpose and this is shown in the food we grow and in the community initiatives we support. We make sure that clients have consistent and reliable access to the highest quality veganic produce while operating to create a positive impact on our employees, community, and global environment. Our produce is grown year-round in a sustainable and healthy environment.
We love technology, but we also love nature. We know when to take a back seat to watch nature do what it does best – create. Our produce is veganic, non-GMO, locally grown, eco- friendly, antibiotic-free, and hormone-free.
We take great pride in the quality of our produce. Whether improving our production methods or furthering our community programs, our belief in farming with integrity is integrated in all parts of our business model. We want our results and successes to be measured in more than just dollars and cents -- we want to foster positive change in the world through farming.
We want our company to be more then just about dollar and cents we want to make positive change and progress in the world.
We are always improving and testing to ensure that we are doing what we do better.
We offer the safest and best quality produce because you shouldn't settle for anything less.
Our Master New Age Farmer
Disruptive food innovator with a passion for the details.
Our master new age farmer is a DC native who grew up in the Columbia Heights neighborhood. Her passion for farming was ignited while gaining hands-on greenhouse experience at McKinley Technology (STEM) High School in the Eckington area. For many years before high school, she spent significant time back yard gardening with her grandmother in the Anacostia area. A pescatarian since high school, she later experienced difficultly sourcing fresh produce in her immediate area when attending Syracuse University in New York State. She fine-tuned her farming and agriculture skills, and built her own aquaponics system in the basement of a rental multi-family home. This experience taught her first hand about food deserts and difficulties for some in getting fresh produce at affordable prices. With foodborne outbreaks in mind and firsthand experience with a foodborne illness, she radically changed her food habits and became hyper-focused on top quality food safe produce even in its raw state. After years of research and developing more reliable and safe farming techniques, she was given offers to start Locals in Syracuse, New York, but instead wanted to help the community from which she came. Locals was formed as a company with the people it serves in mind, to grow fresh organic produce that will simply not make people sick, and be attainable to the masses instead of select few.
It is both a mission and a way of life.
