Imagine a world in which our farmers are in charge of the weather. A world in which they can create any climate, anywhere, at any time. Further still, imagine a tiny slice of the world in which farmers can create the perfect weather for growing a wide range of crops in substantially different climates that sit less than two feet apart from one another. This world exists: Welcome to IGS Indoor Farms: designed in Scotland and shipped to local growers around the globe.
Most indoor farming is economically inefficient due to high power costs
Outside the developing world labour costs are prohibitive
Productivity is hampered by inability to deliver total control environment agriculture
It’s time For a Solution
In our estimation, we have 30 years’ time in which we must transform how we feed ourselves lest we face incredible societal and economic risks. That’s why we’ve built what started as a simple quest for better indoor farming into a go-to-market solution that pushes the indoor farming movement forward.
We took an orthogonal view of the indoor farm to learn how to create a platform that supports scalability. With our platform, farmers can grow healthy crops while dramatically reducing energy and labour costs that prevent economic viability for most crops.
Farmers can advance or retard the growth of crops to meet sudden changes in demand due to unexpected weather. This is a farm free of pesticides; free of diesel-powered vehicles; a farm where water is constantly recycled and crops aren’t washed in chlorinated water, substantially increasing their shelf-life.

Designed for large scale, low-rise buildings using Danish trolleys
Vertical farming is the practice of producing food and medicine in vertically stacked layers, vertically inclined surfaces and/or integrated in other structures (such as in a skyscraper, used warehouse, or shipping container). The modern ideas of vertical farming use indoor farming techniques and controlled-environment agriculture (CEA) technology, where many environmental factors can be controlled. These facilities utilize artificial control of light, environmental control (humidity, temperature, gases…) and fertigation.

We are currently undergoing a re-brand, so some elements of our new site may look quite different, but don’t worry you’re in the right place!
