BR-64 grow rigs at the MetroCrops UHDI farm in Bridgeport, CT.
Turning Factories into Farms
MetroCrops was founded on a USDA / NIFA research grant. MetroCrops’ research objective was to develop the technology to turn unwanted industrial spaces into indoor farms. After two years of research and technology development in an incubator space at the University of Connecticut (Storrs), MetroCrops moved to a former factory in Bridgeport, CT.
MetroCrops built its commercial grow facility with the technology developed under the USDA / NIFA research grant. This facility operates as an urban, high density, indoor (UHDI) commercial farm.
The grow facility is producing high quality, premium priced salad greens 12 months a year for restaurants, grocery stores, farmers’ markets and select residential communities.
This grow facility is a working model of the financial viability of a UHDI commercial farm.
MetroCrops is Connecticut’s first urban, high density, indoor (UHDI) farm
