Eden Green Opens First Phase Of Vertical Farm In Texas


Dallas, Texas-based Eden Green Technology has opened a new two-acre vertical greenhouse in Cleburne, Texas, as well as the onsite expansion of an additional three-acre facility.

The new greenhouses are another milestone in Eden Green’s vision to increase local food accessibility, affordability and sustainability. Its vertical-farm-within-a-greenhouse empowers producers, retailers and suppliers to introduce and expand their controlled environment agriculture offerings, including white label and private label produce. 

Eden Green’s nationwide “mesh network” of high-density vertical greenhouses will shorten supply chains, eliminating millions of excess food miles and their associated costs, environmental impact and spoilage.

Phase one of the North Texas expansion, which opened Sept. 30, was completed in less than 12 months, despite supply chain bottlenecks. This is Eden Green’s first dedicated commercial facility, built alongside their existing 40,000 sq ft pilot facility. This latest facility produces 1.8 million pounds of produce per year, making it one of the highest-yielding facilities in the controlled environment agriculture industry.

Phase two, now under construction, will triple the total production to more than 5 million pounds of produce a year. The $31 million expansion will encompass 125,000 sq ft of grow space, and will employ an additional 50 workers.

“The demand for locally-grown healthy produce is at an all-time high. The last few years have seen tremendous investment in the industry at large and in Texas specifically. We’re proud to have been one of the earliest – and now one of the largest – leaders in the space, creating fresh food and new opportunities for workers,” said Eddy Badrina, CEO.

“As we continue to develop partnerships across the country, we will remain focused on acting as responsible stewards not only to our investors, but our communities and the environment.”

Due to Eden Green’s established relationships with local and national distribution channels, nearly all of the produce from the greenhouse-enclosed vertical farm has buyers. Intrinsic to its business model, every Eden Green facility will reserve up to 10 percent of each weekly harvest capacity.

This first facility will donate its reserves to local nonprofits Veterans Produce, OurCalling and the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center. Already Texas’ first and largest vertical farm company, Eden Green is delivering upon the promise of profitable indoor growing in an urban-adjacent environment – a challenge as yet unmet by other competitors.

Every one of Eden Green Technology’s vertical greenhouses, equipped with their revolutionary patented vertical farming technology, can produce 11 to 13 harvests per year and grow more than 200 products, allowing for on-demand and consistent supply for partners.
