Empire State Greenhouses is the collaborative initiative of a group of deeply committed specialists. We see our endeavor as a way to solve many challenges at once: furthering food safety and security; growing year-round local organic produce close to major markets; mitigating environmental damage caused by traditional farming; producing renewable energy for our needs and providing excess energy to the surrounding community; creating good jobs in an economically challenged region; providing training and jobs to graduates of the adjacent college; and creating multiple income streams and significantly better margins than traditional agriculture to the benefit of all concerned.

ESG’s advanced system of controlled environment agriculture, automated vertical growing systems, and strict organic practices in a beyond net zero, carbon negative facility presents a comprehensive solution: grow far more high-quality produce, in far less space, closer to major markets, while tackling agricultural pollution and producing renewable energy on-site not only for itself but benefitting the surrounding community as well.
