Altius is Latin for higher. Higher taste, sustainability and production, comes from better farming. Altius Farms’ mission is to build stable and lasting farms that produce beautiful greens and produce, locally grown, year round. We are the highest (elevation), vertical aeroponic, farm in the US and one of the largest. Our farms serve as OJT sites for Veterans and urban youth. Our Denver flagship farm offers periodic urban AG tours and special events in our outdoor garden.
Our clients and customers include: restaurants, food service, markets and residents. In Colorado, demand for “locally grown” far exceeds supply as 97% of leafy greens, consumed annually, are imported from out of state (California, Arizona).
We produce our produce with patented, vertical aeroponics which uses only 10% of the land, 5% of the water and delivers 10 times the yield (in one harvest). We harvest every 25-30 days. We take local food production to higher ground.
