In London, a store is hosting an urban micro-farm
In London, FARM:shop has an urban farm in its locale and sells its products directly.
Located in the heart of London, FARM:shop is a store which hosts an urban micro-farm. It has aquaponics tanks, small indoor gardens and a henhouse. It grows its own products and transforms them and sells them in a café area.
There are three main themes to this idea: ecology, local business and respect for nature. In order to control the process from A to Z, the farm has an area for consumption. Visitors are welcome: they can observe the crops, attend conferences or chat with employees on the farm. A work area for people who want to hire an office is available at any hour.
FARM:shop is an innovative site which welcomes a community rather than a clientele. In an effort to offer an alternative to traditional city consumption, it has created a community which is keen on sustainable development and high-quality products. Success has followed: the store is one of the top 100 London stores according to Time Out.
