Status quo disruptors.


We research, design, test, redesign and retest our high quality, American-made vertical growing products. Dr. Nate Storey and the Bright Agrotech team are committed to helping large commercial and small hobbyist growers alike grow more with less.


“I really appreciate you allowing us to come and see the greenhouse. Bright Agrotech’s visions and the Zipgrow tower model have really inspired me to pursue sustainable agriculture, thank you for that.”

Our Values

The relationship between farmer and consumer has grown too distant. Certifications like “Organic” try and fail to give consumers some peace of mind.

Our products create the accountability between farmer and consumer.

Suddenly the years of research, the unhealthy sleep habits and the painstaking investments of our time and energy we’ve made into this vision are beginning to pay off as passionate Upstart Farmers across the USA and abroad are growing fresher food for their communities.

















Our Team

We are passionate about growing food for our local community in a sustainable, highly efficient manner and helping other farmers do the same and live better as a result.

We’ve seen the farms of our families, friends and neighbors suffer from drought and financial issues. We’re also all too familiar with our current centralized, fossil-fuel dependent food system and nutrient-deficient food it produces. These unsustainable farming practices give us a bleak picture of the future.
