For People and For Planet

BrightFarms grows local produce, nationwide. The company is advancing Cox Cleantech’s mission by developing new methods for growing and producing food using scalable, sustainable models. BrightFarms eliminates time, distance and costs from the food supply chain by financing, building and operating local greenhouse farms in partnership with supermarkets, cities, and other vendors.

BrightFarms has created an innovative model that uses far less energy, land and water than centralized, field-grown agriculture which must be transported across long distances to reach end consumers. BrightFarms employs local, community farmers and makes pesticide-free produce accessible to all.

No Pesticides. Ever.
