about us

Tower Farm is more than a start-up in high-tech urban farming. We are a team of engineers, scientists, and experienced business developers. Each member of our team has a unique background, that together makes us stronger. 

our way

The history of our start up goes back to 2017 when two high school friends, Charles SOUFIR and Gerard FARACHE, decided to jump into the great challenge of establishing this start-up. Yishai, an expert in indoor farming, helped to define the right partner with proven technology and joined this adventure as a member of the board.

In January 2019, Tower Farm opened the doors of its first experimentation site at Saint-Nom-La-Bretèche. Shortly after this, in July 2019, we started experiments with edible plants such as aromatic herbs, salades, micro-greens, and strawberries. We developed retail partnerships with Les fermes de Gally and Diagonal. 

The next phase of our history was more challenging and therefore exciting. We decided to level up our quality and standards and work on medicinal plants. Within the first year, we were contacted by two major pharmaceutical and cosmetic companies. Thanks to them, we managed to distinguish our business model and get on track for success.

our social commitments

Our mission is to develop a truly sustainable solution that will be beneficial for both society and the environment. In terms of environmental objectives, we provide more with less. We reduce resource consumption and the distance to the next transformation point, while our production works on green energy. 

As a responsible company, we are committed to helping society by sharing knowledge and promoting learning. For many, urban farming provides a unique opportunity to find their place in life. Tower Farm is more than just a job; we give people a chance to learn, evolve and grow.

The great initiative of Les Fermes de Gally & La Ferme Horticole Théart led to the creation of a community called Station V. 

It is an agricultural incubator where various start-ups in agriculture can develop their proof of concept and make their first steps to the market. 

We are proud to be a part of this project. Station V is a supportive environment, where different start-ups are united with the same challenges. We are not competitors but allies who find support and council together to go further and faster.

"Know-how" does not work without "know-who". There is a special importance to staying informed about new projects, opportunities, and legal changes to keep up with this world. 

At this point, our partners are coming to the rescue. They connect us to new projects, give us access to funds, and propose truly useful newsletters. Together, we can make the changes for the greater good.

 

We also work side by side with truly outstanding and therefore leading agricultural universities and research institutions in France. 

Industries and universities challenge each other to make a step forward. Thanks to them, we have hope of building a sustainable future. Step after step, they provide their expertise and technical support in solving truly vital problems that will bring us, mankind, to the next level.
