About us
Fischer Farms is revolutionising the future of farming, providing a more resilient and sustainable way to feed the world.

Having grown at significant pace over the past five years, today we operate one of the largest vertical farms in the UK. Following a multi-million-pound investment from Gresham House, we are now poised for significant growth.

The timeline

Our history


/ The start

Established by green energy expert, Tristan Fischer, we began operations in a shipping container in 2017, growing short leafy greens. 


/ Farm 1

Our first vertical farm opened in 2019 in Burton-on-Trent, providing 3,200 m2 of growing space - one of the largest vertical farms in the UK. The facility produces a wide range of short leaf products, such as rocket, via a stacked, biosecure, climate-controlled and fully automated system.


/ Farm 2

In the later part of the year Farm 2 is set to be the largest vertical farm in the world. The 4-acre site in Norfolk houses 25,000 m2 of growing space – to supply leaf salad, leafy herbs and other fresh produce to UK supermarkets and other customers every day. 


/ The future

In the next few years, we plan to scale up the production of salads and herbs significantly, while expanding into other crops like soft fruit. Our long-term vision is to grow soya beans, rice, and wheat in significant volumes and at price points that compare favourably to global commodity prices.




Our goal is to grow some of the world’s least sustainable foods at scale, in a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way.
With a proven track record in green energy and vertical farming, and with the backing of Gresham House, Fischer Farms is set to achieve its goal of transforming the future of farming.
