Our Story


Bringing delicious, sustainable, year-round local farming to communities everywhere is the BrightFarms mission, and we’re happy to continue that mission here in Chicagoland. Through careful research, thoughtful selection, and thorough planning, we established an amazing new Chicagoland Greenhouse farm in Rochelle, IL.

Located and designed for maximum efficiency and productivity, the greenhouse offers fresh produce to the communities and families in the area, all year round. It also uses far fewer resources and less energy than any similar-sized traditional farm, with no GMOs and zero use of pesticides. BrightFarms feels right at home in Chicagoland, and we look forward to being a responsible, productive member of the community in the years to come.
