Heritage Radio Network visits AeroFarms
Heritage Radio Network is dedicated to having conversations about food that go far deeper than they would in the mainstream media.
This week on Eating Matters, we bring you a special field piece recorded at AeroFarms – an indoor, vertical farm – in Newark, New Jersey. Jenna Liut teams up with fellow Heritage Radio Network hosts Erin Fairbanks (The Farm Report) and Chef Emily Peterson (Sharp and Hot) to tour the company’s state-of-the-art aeroponic facility that uses a patented technology, allowing the growing of food indoors without sun or soil, using 95% less water than in the field. Tune in for our tour of the facility, a 30,000 square foot former paintball and laser tag arena which houses the largest vertical farm in the world.
