Farm Of The Future

Farm Of The Future

Ripe Labs started in 2016 to bring theories to life. They researched farming in 3 conditions: Tropical, Temperate and Mountainous. Results from these experiments were unlike anything they’ve seen before; Leafy Vegetables grew 50% faster with an astounding 58% higher yield. Strawberries grew 30% faster while basil, coriander, and mint flourished in their lab. It all used 90% less water. I’m here with co-founder Catherine Mak who is also the Director of Alpha Geckos, a creative and branding agency.
