Sector Ag Inputs & Suppliers

Founded 2017

Headquarters Lexington, KY

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.
