Corner Stalk Farm grows leafy greens all year round in recycled shipping containers which creates an extremely energy and water efficient environment. A year round growing season and dense planting allows maximum productivity from a dense urban footprint. 


How It Works

 

Controlled Environment

 

Corner Stalk Farm specializes in Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA). Temperature control, LED lighting, and automatic water flow within insulated shipping containers creates an ideal year-round environment that leafy greens need. Blizzard or heat wave, we're still harvesting.

 

Vertical & Hydroponic

 

Hydroponics is a soil-less growing method that allows the cultivation of plants using recirculated water with optimum nutrient inputs. Compared to the harmful chemical and grey water runoff created by industrial farming and urban pollution, Corner Stalk Farm has no runoff and use no pesticides or harmful chemicals. To top it off, we leverage vertical growing technology to grow twenty plants per square foot of farm space per month.

 



Heirloom Lettuces

 

Corner Stalk Farm grows more than twenty varieties of lettuces chosen for color, texture, and taste. Freshly harvested, our locally grown lettuces are packaged as a mix for Boston area consumers. Additionally, Corner Stalk Farm grows a variety of herbs and other leafy greens including: basil, arugula, swiss chard, kale, mint, and mustard greens. Requests welcome.
