Urban Produce is pleased to announce it received the prestigious 2016 Small Business Award at the 17th Annual Family Owned Business Awards presented by the Orange County Business Journal. Urban Produce is a family-owned operation growing 16 acres of USDA-certified organic produce using atmospheric water generation at their indoor vertical farm in Irvine, California. “It’s truly an honor to be recognized alongside so many strong, successful businesses,” says Danielle Horton, who accepted the award with her father, Ed Horton. “Channeling our family unity while focusing on our individual skill sets has been integral to our success at Urban Produce.” The Horton family was recognized as pioneers in the vertical farming field and honored for contributions to their community. Their award comes just after they announced the licensing of their patented growing technology, the High Density Vertical Growing System. Read the full story in the July issue of Industry News.
