Our Farms

From research and development to commercial farming, each of our indoor, vertical farms plays a vital role in the global operation that is AeroFarms. Our growing technology is very modular and can be adapted to different repurposed industrial spaces. As a result, each farm has a history all its own. We have a rich farming history of over 10 years that first started up in the Finger Lakes area of New York. We moved our headquarters to Newark in 2015 to be able to serve the New York metro area. We currently operate the following farms.

Global Headquarters

212 Rome Street, Newark, NJ, USA

Before 212 Rome was the global headquarters for AeroFarms, it was a former steel mill: over 75 years old and in need of a makeover. Now part of RBH Group’s Maker’s Village project in the historic Ironbound district of Newark, our Global Headquarters is the largest indoor vertical farm in the world based on annual growing capacity.
