Babylon Micro-Farms Launches Galleri, a Revolutionary New Vertical Farm

Babylon Micro-Farms Launches Galleri, a Revolutionary New Vertical Farm

Our guest is Alexander Olesen, CEO and founder of Babylon Micro-Farms. The Richmond, Va.-based company has developed a hydroponics-based approach to growing produce in enclosed compact systems — about the size of a large vending machine — that can be managed remotely. The system produces as much produce in 15 square feet of space as 2,000 square feet of traditional farmland. The company describes its product as a “cloud-based vertical farm” that provides expert cultivation advice and cues about when to harvest. The Babylon Micro-Farms system can help grocers, restaurants, and communities to plant, grow, and harvest produce within yards of where it will be purchased or consumed.
