Paul Lightfoot really got it right with BrightFarms. The produce/farming startup, or revolution as Lightfoot calls it starts with them. BrightFarms partners with supermarkets and food retailers to build hydroponic produce farms in their community and in some cases on the rooves of their stores and distribution centers. By cutting out the complex supply chains we have become reliant on for fresh produce BrightFarms is able to deliver higher quality food for equal or better prices. This TEDxManhattan talk is a must watch. Right now BrightFarms is working on several projects around NYC the most interesting of which is a gigantic rooftop farm in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
