Taking Indoor Farming to the Next Level …

Iron Ox is an indoor hydroponic facility – an indoor farm ran by robots. The autonomous farms produce leafy greens at 26,000 heads a year, in a space that is 5 times small of a farm of the same production. The company believes that having an automated farm means robots will make up for jobs currently lacking in the agricultural industry. It could also mean setting up these farms in closer areas, so produce has to travel less, making it fresher and more sustainable.
