Our farms

Our hydroponic rooftop farms are very efficient. We would only need to convert the rooftops of 19 average-sized shopping centres to grow enough veggies for all of Montreal. Every new greenhouse we build gets bigger, better, lighter, and cheaper, so that urban rooftop farms can become a must when building new structures.

Ahuntsic 2011

The first commercial rooftop greenhouse in the world, the greenhouse that started it all.

Laval 2013

Our second rooftop greenhouse was designed to house and maximize our tomato production.

Anjou 2017

Our third rooftop greenhouse is our largest to date and dedicated to greens production.

We believe in the necessity of reconnecting with and knowing how our food is grown. That’s why we open our doors every Friday for schools and organizations - first come, first served! Send an email at visits@lufa.com for more info. And everyone is invited every few months for our big open houses!

How we farm responsibly

The goal of sustainable agriculture is to meet society’s needs in the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own. Here are the five principles that guide our farming ways.

Saving water

Being on a rooftop allows us to capture rainwater and we recirculate all irrigation water in a closed-loop system.

Controlling pests

We use no synthetic pesticides. Instead, we fend off pests and plant diseases using biological controls.

Using no new land

Lost spaces on urban rooftops let us farm close to the people, using no new land, and are a win-win for energy savings.

Saving energy

We use half the heating energy that a ground-level greenhouse would, thanks to our technology-based farming ways.

Reducing waste

We compost green waste in order to offset it from landfills, and we pick our veggies to order for each day’s baskets.
