Winning Vertical Farm Proposals


Yes it is!

With a well-developed business plan and efficient operations, indoor farming has proven to be a rewarding venture for thousands of agricultural entrepreneurs worldwide for decades, and, with global pressures on several fronts, has been experiencing exponential growth, attracting more individuals to the space than ever.

When the right technology is coupled with the right crops, scale, market demand, and production cost, is an excellent source of revenue and return all year long!

Trends, patterns, and traits have emerged as the industry matures, with successful growers learning from others’ mistakes while focusing on several key priorities.


Select crops that are in high demand and can be sold at a premium price. Popular options include leafy greens, herbs, and specialty crops.


Optimize your farming system to minimize inputs such as water, electricity, and labor costs. This can be achieved through the use of energy-efficient lighting, automation, and other technologies and techniques.


By selling your produce directly to consumers through farmers markets, online stores, or other channels, you can increase your profits by cutting out intermediaries.


Consider expanding your market by selling to restaurants, grocery stores, and other businesses that may be interested in locally-grown produce.


Stay up-to-date with the latest trends and technologies in vertical farming, and continuously experiment to find new ways to improve your operation and increase profitability.

The supply chain plays a pivotal role in the success and sustainability of vertical farming, ensuring the efficient flow of resources and produce from cultivation to market.

Get Started


From sourcing consumable supplies to delivering your harvest - a strong, reliable supply chain is crucial.

Vertical farmers face the ongoing challenge of keeping their inventories on track. Anticipating demand, negotiating with suppliers, and coordinating logistics for timely deliveries requires careful planning, organization, and effective communication.

While indoor ag is sustainable, it still consumes resources… As farmers strive to minimize waste, and reduce their overall environmental impact, suppliers to our field provide options that can help your brand stand out for all the right reasons.

A well-functioning supply chain will enhance your productivity and let you focus on growing.

Help your brand shine!

Should I ship with roots on or off? Shredded or whole leaf? How much will they order this week?
Knowing what your customer preferences are requires good communication and a bit of intuition. Getting it right will make or break a long-term reliable relationship.

You will want your bulk-ordered produce to look it’s best when your customers receive it and convenient when they go to use it. Maximum shelf life is a must for some, while ease of use will develop positive sentiment with others. By using packaging that regulates temperature and humidity levels, the longevity and shelf life of the produce can be extended. It provides a protective shield against physical damage, moisture, and contaminants, ensuring the produce remains in optimal condition.

When you’re counting on repeat customers, count on Cultivatd for the freshest packaging ideas.
