Growing Vegetables in the Desert using only Sun and Seawater

Australian farm grows 17,000 tons of vegetables every year in the desert, using only sun and seawater.

Sundrop Farms is a global leader in sustainable agriculture, growing fresh fruits and vegetables using renewable inputs.



We are showing the world that you can grow delicious vegetables without the need of fossil fuels, vast amounts of fresh water and thousands of acres of cultivated farmland.

We have transformed agriculture, we are breaking farming’s dependence on finite resources.

We harvest solar power to supply us with energy. Hydroponic greenhouses that don’t use soil encourage the plants we grow to flourish. Water treatment creates fresh water from the sea or brackish sources to irrigate our crops.

The team explains:



“We use the Sun’s energy to produce freshwater for irrigation. And we turn it into electricity to power our greenhouse to heat and cool our crops. Our ventilation also uses seawater to clean and sterilise the air, so it keeps bugs under control without the need for pesticides.”
