Stay In The Loop

We develop large Closed Loop Farms to grow food + vaccines anywhere on Earth today and in Space tomorrow

Suggest an Investment Partner

The future of food production is not about wide open pastures and reliance on steady stable climate, it's about climate independent agriculture, it's about farms that not only produce fresh fruits and veggies but also clean energy, fish, biopolymers, medicines, vaccines and cellular agriculture all while recycling every nutrient possible.

These farms recycle almost all the water and nutrients within the system so that they can grow food in deserts or northern climates which are the areas that are energy rich with renewable energy resources.

Farms for the Anthropocene,

"The Age of Humans"

Climate Independent Agriculture

What types of Foods?

Plants

We will aim to grow all types of foods. As we look to build farms around the world, we can't just grow lettuce and basil. We must develop systems which can grow all types of crops, from rice to corn and even medicinal and nutraceutical plants. We need to develop climate independent growing systems to preserve all types of foods. Not all will begin today but each project we develop will have a uniqueness from the area of which it can contribute to the global knowledge pool.

 

Seafood

Fish play an important role in our ecosystems as they are one of the most efficient converters of feed into food with healthy proteins and useful oils. In addition to a source of protein, the fish provide the nitrogen our plants require in the greenhouses.

 

Vegan Proteins

We will produce proteins in many forms, from Salmon and Trout to shrimp, to single cell proteins which can be blended into protein rich breads, pastas, or even using high moisture extrusion to be made into burgers and sausages. We will produce animal and fish feed products which will help to save the oceans from the fishmeal and fishing industries which aid in collapsing ocean ecosystems.

 

Cellular Agriculture

We will produce the nutrients which will enable the cellular agriculture industry to thrive, scale and grow.

 

Offtake Agreements:

We expect to be able to provide our food customers, grocery chains and restaurant groups with consistent pricing over 20 year periods. This consistency of price and quality along with flexibility of product based on our customers' demand enable us to develop long lasting partnerships with our clients. If you purchase foods for your company, or are responsible for sourcing or importing foods, we would like to chat. If you can provide us with purchase agreements we can usually use this to assist in financing the development of a project and give our customer a strategic advantage over their local competitors.

The Universal Food Project:

A global collaboration for the production of food for earth and space

One of the most incredible things humanity has ever done is collaborate on building the most expensive object in history called the International Space Station (ISS). Cold War nations came together, with countries all over the world, to build this. Food and space are the two great things that connect us all. Ever since the beginning of man, we’ve looked up and made stories about the moon and the stars. Food is the bond that brings everyone together, no matter where you’re from. We’re trying to make an international project here on Earth, to solve the challenge of producing food in a closed loop agriculture system. And by combining food and space, we can truly change the world.

We're bringing together space agencies, universities, and technology companies of the world in the next "International Space Station" type of project called The Universal Food Project.

If you're interested in contributing, joining, investing, helping or simply want to let us know that you support this idea, we need you to raise your hand and let us know. The ISS was put together with 40,000 letters of support for the collaboration. We need to hit or exceed that number to gain the support for this endeavour.

I'd like to Collaborate

Email us a letter of Support

Today humanity, and YOU need to make some decisions on how we want the next 1000 years to look like. We've got our minds made up that we want the world to be in a better position for our children and their children's children. We have the means, capital and capabilities to achieve a better future.
We're not waiting for governments and politicians to take action, we're building the future we want to live in.

Mission #1

Building a healthy earth

We integrate an architecture of cutting edge, yet proven technologies to enable food and energy to be produced anywhere on earth.

  • Amino Acids,
  • Fish and animal feeds,
  • FBS replacements
  • Cellular Agriculture Manufacturing

We plan our greenhouses to grow a variety of products depending on the local need.

  • Leafy Greens
  • Lettuce
  • Herbs
  • Bok choy
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Sweet peppers
  • Hops

We utilize RAS systems for growing fish and select the ideal species for the location, climate and our offtake client partner.

  • Salmon
  • Murray Cod
  • Trout
  • Tilapia
  • Barramundi
  • Arctic Char

Green Hydrogen is critical for our systems for backup power, energy storage,  and use within our bioreactors. We will also consider developing our own renewable energy projects including wind, solar, agrivoltaics, and geothermal systems for our purposes and to supply power to our other industry partners and customers.

Our integration between advanced technologies such as clean tech, biotech, agritech, robotics and automation, and strong collaboration with local partners, enables an Orbital Farm to create skilled jobs, fresh food and local agriculture. Special focus for us are areas with limitations such as arid land, extreme weather and distressed regions of the world.

 

Each one of our commercial scale farms can provide enough protein to take care of between 450,000 and 4.5 million people EVERY DAY.

Orbital Farm is a Circular Project Development company which is developing 200 large scale closed loop farms around the world in the next 10 years. We are aiming to meet the UN SDG goal #2 of ending world hunger by 2030.

We integrate technologies that are involved in closed loop production and management of food, water, and fuel for long term space missions. We do this today by developing and financing large industrial scale, profitable projects here on earth to produce food in places where it would otherwise not be possible. Our projects begin by utilizing waste streams from our industry business partners such as CO2, food waste, wastewater, methane, even waste heat or energy. We leverage these waste streams with biotechnology which is the beginning of the mini ecosystem. We then grow fish in large recirculating tanks and flow that water into large greenhouses. The fish provide the nutrients for the plants to thrive and grow without the need for pesticides or fossil fuel based fertilizers. The water is recycled in the system and we harvest the fish and fruits and vegetables.

More simply we're able to transform CO2 and electricity directly to food, clean water and fertilizer. Our vertical integration both increases our profitability while solving critical challenges humanity faces today. Our flexible architecture of processes and technologies allows us to tailor combinations to the need of a project site. We directly address climate change by strategically locating our farms near to industrial areas where we’re able to leverage efficient logistics and be close to large communities. Additionally we have the ability of using hundreds of thousands of tons per year of CO2 in a single project to make food to provide for millions of people every day. Finally, we're developing an impact investment structure to finance hundreds of projects over the next 15-20 years. These long term stable investments are structured to attract large institutional investors, pension funds and family offices.

Our mission is to grow food and medicine anywhere on earth today, then on the moon and Mars tomorrow.
