LufaFarms is not your typical growing operation. It is a 31,000 square foot series of greenhouses set on top of a corporate office building in Montreal. Yes, you read that right, 25 varieties of vegetables are grown in greenhouses throughout the Canadian winter, where temperatures rarely raise above freezing.

Not only are they growing food, they are doing it profitably, and plan to extend to Boston, New York, and Chicago within the next couple years. Lufa is looking to create the first business model that successfully produces and sells food in an urban environment - simultaneously turning a profit and drastically reducing the miles produce travels before making its way onto urban dinner tables.

Office Buildings add Cash Crops to Their Balance Sheet from Fast Co. Exist

I've seen rooftop farms in NYC but greenhouses are a magnificent idea!
