Amorette Farms & SOD Work Together Bringing Healthy Greens to Salem

Salem, Ohio, Release: August 29, 2019

Amorette Farms is a start-up company currently based out of Beloit, Ohio, that is using a new, innovative way to grow safe, healthy greens for their customers and the community at large – an indoor vertical farm. They specialize in cultivating non-GMO microgreens using ecologically sustainable practices. Their focus is to bring high-quality microgreens, leafy greens, and herbs to the region on a year-round basis. Microgreens are the shoots of salad greens such as arugula, harvested just after the first leaves are developed, containing high nutritional value and flavor. Amorette Farms currently offers microgreens to local restaurants and health food stores in the area.

Amorette Farms grows all of its products on an indoor vertical farm, a newer technology gaining popularity since the mid 2000’s. This form of agriculture allows the company to grow fresh produce year-round without the use of chemical herbicides or pesticides. “By having complete control of the environment we grow in, we are able to grow a consistently healthy and flavorful plant, resulting in elevated dishes our customers are able to create,” owner and founder Devyn Rothbrust explains.

Amorette Farms is currently partnered with The Sustainable Opportunity Development Center, Inc. (The SOD Center) based out of Salem Ohio. Owner of Amorette Farms Devyn Rothbrust, who received his horticulture degree from Kent State Salem campus, states, “We are excited to work alongside the SOD Center to bring a new technology to the Salem area. Our goal is to eventually move into downtown Salem to help in the already occurring revitalization of the downtown district. I think the downtown district in Salem is making great improvements. There is a strong foundation of small business owners already leading the way, attracting new businesses to the area. Our goal since the beginning has been to add value to the community we are in. By establishing our offices downtown we can be a part of that restoration. We would be a unique business to the area and I believe setting up in Salem would be a great opportunity. “
