Circular economy & urban farming
Our farms are changemakers.
Pioneering urban farming.
From Humble Beginings
We want to make our cities better places to live, with more greenery, less pollution, and more synergies between buildings, local population and nature. We focus on buildings becoming productive thanks to our all year round urban farms.
We wish to see a transition in food production, where technology, sustainable practices and locals come together to create a food system that works for consumers, producers and their environment. We want people to have access to local food and connect people with food production at the heart of the city.
We think urban agriculture is complementary to peri-urban and rural agriculture, including networks of partners and producers. We promote the role of urban farming as an effective demonstration of circular economy.
Our Love for Food
Our mission is to create sustainable farms which work together with buildings using their energy loss, rainwater, CO2 and natural potential for space, orientation, microclimate and solar exposure. Our farms are circular systems. They are designed to produce no waste, minimise energy input and have a positive environmental impact. Farms are a obvious implementation of circular economy: optimised and aiming at reaching zero waste.
In our farms we use cradle-to-cradle and non toxic materials. Tolerance zero for chemicals, antibiotics, GMO results of the transparent nature of Aquaponic farming ecosystem. The bio- filter enables us to produce nutrients for high-quality fruits, vegetables growth and zero waste recirculating aquaculture system. Pioneering Europe’s building integrated intensive and commercial farming model.
BIGH is more than ever aware of food quality concerns and bring through short distribution channels, the freshest and tastiest produce to urban dwellers and chefs’ tables. BIGH’s farms also create jobs, generate income & boost green urban entrepreneurship. BIGH works with social workplaces for every farm it develops as well as employs workers from the neighborhood.
