About Us

GrowStack Ltd came together in 2016 when we realised that the vertical farming market was about to explode and here we were with the experience of building a large-scale bespoke vertical farm deep underground in London. We have the combined knowledge and expertise to build a vertical farm virtually anywhere and the passion and drive to make sure that what we build works and becomes a successful venture for our clients.
Let us be your partner in this exciting new industry to deliver the farms of the future.
