Spirulina Smart Microfarm.

Welcome to our Smart Microfarm greenhouse just south of San Francisco. The first spirulina farm in Northern California. Here we grow spirulina, a blue-green algae, year round, in a controlled environment greenhouse. Spirulina is harvested several times a week. The fresh harvest collects on a microscreen like a creamy yogurt. It can be frozen or dehydrated. We package and distribute SpiruSource® fresh harvest, fresh frozen, and low temperature dried crunchies and powder.

Smart Algae Microfarms.

Smart algae microfarms may be the future of greenhouses, hydroponics and urban farming. In a small area, fast-growing microalgae, like the superfood spirulina, produce higher income for growers than conventional food, herbs and vegetables. Successful small-scale algae cultivation is now practical. With web-based remote sensors and controls, remote experts can guide local operators, without the cost of onsite algae scientists.
