Silicon Valley startup has big plans for its first vertical farming facility in Phoenix metro

Vertical farming has been developing around the world and is seen as an alternative and sustainable way to farm while using less space and water, and now that technology is well on its way to the Phoenix market.

By early next year, an entrepreneur is opening the first phase of a technology-driven vertical farm inside an 80,000-square-foot warehouse in Avondale — and it’s just the start of what his company hopes to change in agriculture.

Unlike traditional farms, Silicon-Valley based OnePointOne Inc. uses plant science, vertical plane aeroponics systems, robots and artificial intelligence to grow food plants more efficiently indoors, according to the company.

One of the main goals of the facility is to be the “platform of production for agriculture,” through which food service companies and other businesses could purchase and virtually operate, according to co-founder and chief executive Sam Bertram, who was recently named as one of several Arizona residents in the Forbes 30 under 30 list for social impact.
