Hundred Acre founder, Chris Corkery, has created an endless summer in Milwaukee’s Century City neighborhood.
Founded in 2022, Corkey operates one of Wisconsin’s largest vertical hydroponic urban farms. Tucked inside of a 5,000 square-foot former factory, the company produces 40,000 pounds of non-GMO greens annually, all without pesticides or herbicides.
The farm sells its greens to grocery stores and restaurants all over town and creates a line of ready-made pesto available at Outpost Natural Foods. The revenue-generating company currently has five employees.
Wisconsin agriculture contributes $104.8 billion annually to the state economy. The state has 64,100 working farms.
