Urban.Ag™ (UA) is a next generation urban agriculture development firm based out of Elwood, Indiana. We work with the community, local governments, schools, community leaders/organizers, developers, and investors to transform underutilized urban spaces into food growing facilities that produce high-quality, organic, and affordable food. These strategically placed food hubs create environmentally efficient supply chains of locally grown produce. Reducing the amount of food miles from farm to fork to zero. As well as, producing stable good paying jobs for the local economy.
Urban agriculture is the practice of cultivating, processing, and distributing food in or around a village, town, or city.
An urban farm is a part of a local food system where food is cultivated and produced within an urban area and marketed to consumers within that urban area. Urban farming can also include animal husbandry (e.g., breeding and raising livestock), beekeeping, aquaculture (e.g., fish farming), aquaponics (e.g., integrating fish farming and agriculture), and non-food products such as producing seeds, cultivating seedlings, and growing flowers. It can be characterized in terms of the geographic proximity of a producer to the consumer, sustainable production and distribution practices. Urban farms can take a variety of forms including non-profit gardens and forprofit businesses. They can provide jobs, job training, and health education, and they can contribute to better nutrition and health for the community by providing locally grown, fresh produce and other products. In addition, urban farms can also contribute to the revitalization of abandoned or underutilized urban land, social and economic benefits to urban communities, and beneficial impacts on the urban landscape.
