FarmedHere, an indoor vertical farm, is housed an old warehouse in Bedford Park, Ill. Its crops include basil, arugula and microgreens, sold at grocery stores in Chicago and its suburbs. Officials at FarmedHere plan to expand growing space to 150,000 square feet by the end of next year. It currently has about 20 percent of that growing space now.
