A pioneer in the field of indoor farming, 80 Acres Farms and Siemens have announced their partnership. 80 Acres Farms specializes in growing the next generation of food grown in eco-friendly indoor farms closer to consumers’ tables. The company has five production farms in southwest Ohio, a new farm in Florence, Kentucky, a future farm in Covington, Georgia, and R&D facilities in Arkansas and the Netherlands.

The two organizations have joined forces to deploy cutting-edge technology inside the agriculture industry, supporting sustainable, wholesome, traceable, and more effective farming techniques. The initial investment from Siemens Financial Services supports the partnership. With the help of Siemens’ broad range of software and hardware solutions, including advanced industrial automation technology and intelligent facility and energy management systems, 80 Acres Farms is in an excellent position to achieve its objective of streamlining and standardizing its operations to promote global food security.

  “Vertical farming provides an opportunity to make this idea a reality, and 80 Acres Farms’ use of technology is now serving as a blueprint for the future of this revolutionary method of food production,” said Barbara Humpton, president and chief executive officer of Siemens USA. “What I see at 80 Acres Farms represents both the purpose and the power of the industrial technologies now easily accessible to us: the capability to invent anywhere and then scale our world-changing solutions everywhere,” the author writes. “In this moment of change and disruption, and in a world becoming increasingly “glocal”. 

80 Acres and Siemens’ collaboration entails process and facility optimization, automation, and management. Siemens supports the industrialization and scaling of the company’s unique Loop platform. This comprehensive solution includes crop management software and algorithms, environmental controls, robotics, and automation, collaborating with the company’s technological subsidiary, Infinite Acres.
