Our Story
We are an innovative Canadian food producer dedicated to growing consistent, healthy, and fresh vegetables year round. Grown in a completely controlled environment, our produce is grown from non-GMO seeds and free of pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides. Controlled environment means no contact with the outside world, eliminating the possibilities of contamination and infection. With careful consideration for food traceability, sustainability, and of course, taste, our produce is picked at the peak of ripeness, ensuring luscious plate ready food every time. We redefine what it means to be truly local and fresh.

The world's first commercial Cubic Farm™ opened in June 2014 in Mirabel, Quebec.
