Occupying 90,000 square feet of a formerly abandoned suburban Chicago warehouse, the FarmedHere is the not only the first indoor vertical farm of its kind in the nation — but it is also the largest.

Celebrating its grand opening in located in Bedford Park, Ill. on Friday, FarmedHere utilizes a soil-free, aquaponic process to grow organic greens that are both tastier and more sustainable than traditional farming.

Here’s how it works: Plants are grown in beds stacked as much as six high by using a mineral-rich water solution which is derived from tanks of hormone-free tilapia offering up nutrients to the plants in a controlled environment that ensures optimal growing.
