Position: Modern Farmer 

Reports to: Farm Manager  

The Future of Fresh is Here! 

Food isn’t what it used to be. We made it better, and we did it by building a different kind of farm. A  farm that doesn’t need sun, soil or favorable weather to do its thing. A farm where pesticides have  no place—because everything’s indoors, monitored and controlled, 24/7. We built a farm where  robots do the heavy lifting, so the humans can focus on growing the freshest, most nutritious food  possible. A farm that can produce over 300 times more food than an ordinary farm. With 100%  renewable energy. And 97% less water. Pretty unbelievable, right? 

Well, believe it. This farm is real. We call it 80 Acres Farms. 

Fresher food awaits you.
