Unit 84 is the UK’s first aquaponic, vertical urban farm.
Based inside an industrial warehouse in Beckton, the farm combines two well-established farming practices – aquaculture (farming fish) and hydroponics (growing plants in a nutrient solution without soil) in a recirculating system. Our 6,000 square feet of growing space produces more than 20,000 kg of sustainable salads and herbs (enough for 200,000 salad bags) and 4,000 kg of fish each year.
The farm also includes a visitor centre allowing people to understand more about sustainable food production in cities, and enables our business to increase its social and environmental impact in the local community and engage more people in learning about urban farming.
Over the last couple of months we have successfully opened the farm and you can follow our journey of our progress, our partnerships and our produce.
Unit 84 is a working farm and is not open to the public. Please check back soon for information on public open days.
