Who We Are
Owned and operated by Toronto brothers Stefan and Lukas, etobiGrow is an urban farm that’s on a mission to redefine the meaning of local food. Utilizing the latest in hydroponic vertical farming technology we grow produce of the highest quality year-round right here in the city. We believe in sustainable, organic practices that use less water and generate less waste than traditional outdoor farming.

Where We Grow
Our plants are grown across several micro-farms directly within the communities we serve. By growing locally in otherwise underutilized spaces from empty warehouses to parking garages, we’re able to maximize freshness and drastically reduce delivery miles. If you’re interested in learning more about our micro-farming network or have under-utilized space to contribute to the cause, feel free to contact us to check out our flagship farm located in the heart of Etobicoke’s historic Thompson Orchard community.
How We Grow
All of our plants are hydroponically grown with purified water and organic practices. By growing indoors away from pests and inclement weather, we’re able to use up to 95% less water than conventional agriculture, eliminate the need for pesticides, and avoid harmful wastewater run-off into our local rivers and lakes. Through the use of innovative software and sensors collecting data on everything from carbon dioxide and nutrients levels to light intensity and humidity, we’re able to create highly curated growth cycles that virtually eliminate food waste by growing perfect produce time and time again.
What We Grow
Right now our farm is focused on growing the best basil out there. From Genovese to Shiso and Thai to Tulsi, basil takes on many forms around the world and we’re excited to share these authentic flavours with you! Learn More
