Life on the farm at Pepperness
Pepperness is our fourth vertical farm. Located near Sandwich, we’re proud to be joining the long-standing farming community in Kent, bringing our own GrowUp twist with us.
When we built Pepperness, we took a brownfield site and built the equivalent of 1000 acres of Grade 1 farmland on it. We grow, harvest, and pack our plants in the same place, shortening our supply chain while reducing emissions and waste. Because we only grow in the UK, our food hits your shelves quicker, too.
From seed to plate
We grow, we harvest and we pack, all in the same place – from seed to plate, we shorten the supply chain and only grow in the UK, reducing emissions and waste.
We’ve cracked one of the biggest problems in vertical farming: energy supply. We built Pepperness next door to a bioenergy power station, so we’ve got unlimited renewable power and electricity at our fingertips, come rain or shine.
Using this 100% renewable energy, we control the growing environment at Pepperness to make sure the conditions are perfect for our plants.
