A humane and healthy planet.
To back the best entrepreneurs that are improving the overall health and sustainability of the food system.
AppHarvest is building some of the world’s largest controlled environment agriculture facilities, combining conventional agricultural techniques with today’s technology to grow non-GMO, chemical-free fruits and vegetables. The company has developed a unique system to reduce water usage by 90% compared to typical farms, as a 10-acre, on-site rainwater retention pond pairs with sophisticated circular irrigation systems. The system also eliminates agricultural runoff entirely.
Located within Appalachia, the company is less than a day’s drive to 70% of the U.S. population. That dramatically lowers transportation costs, allowing the company's fresher produce to compete against low-cost foreign imports.
AppHarvest is both a registered and certified Benefit Corporation, putting people and the planet first. Better produce, better farming practices and better jobs.
