Urban Farm-to-Table in Omaha

Hydroponically grown greens. Year-round at our vertical farm and restaurant.

Located below Gather in Omaha restaurant, the Gather Urban Farm grows varieties of greens, sweet basil, peppery arugula, crispy kale and more. Visit our unique vertical farm in downtown Omaha for incredibly fresh produce that goes from farm to table in just minutes.

Servicing just one of our restaurant locations would require 300 square feet of traditional farm area, or 3,000 square feet to service multiple concepts. Gather Urban Farm allows us to produce with far less, while reducing our food travel from 2,500 miles to just 5 feet.

We grow fresh produce for our Omaha restaurant on-site, cut to order with no nutrient or flavor loss. Most people have never tasted the true flavor of arugula. It’s time you did.

With supply chain disruptions and produce being recalled from contaminations, our Omaha urban farm and its food offer cleanliness, purity and dependability in a self-contained, controlled environment. We recycle our water through reverse osmosis – reducing our usage by 95% compared to traditional farms – and never use herbicides, pesticides or chemicals.

More Benefits:

  • Superior nutrient density (can actually increase the nutrient density in certain plants)
  • Controlled temperature, light, humidity, and other variables to consistently produce predictable yields, regardless of the weather
  • Grown year-round, even in heart of winter
  • Sustainably grown with LED low-energy lights
  • Automated feeding and watering cycles, eliminating weeding and digging, and minimizing pest risk
  • Multiple varieties of produce in one area
  • No need to use preservatives, irradiation, or other means to keep produce stable
  • Delivers product three times faster – seedling to harvest cycle can be as short as 21 days for most herbs and leafy greens
  • Each unit takes up less than 6 square feet, so we can produce 10 times more food than a conventional farm of the same size
  • No need for heavy equipment or massive amounts of fossil fuels

Our Farm-to-Table Produce

Arugula

Peppery and powerful punch of flavor.

Basil

Sweet and savory, with hints of mint, anise, and pepper. This aromatic herb ultimately adds a hint of sweetness to any dish.

Benefine Frisee Endive

Ruffled head of light green leaves, deeply cut and toothed. At maturity, its heart blanches to reveal creamy, sweet leaves.

Chives

Common culinary herbs to provide a mild onion flavor, with the leaves used fresh or dried.

Kale-abration

Hearty, colorful purple and green kale with a watery texture. Less tough than traditional kale. Easier to chew on its own.

Mint

Subtly sweet taste and cool sensation that comes from the menthol contained in the herb.

Mustard Greens

Peppery-tasting greens that have a strong bitter, spicy flavor.

Vibrant Wasabi Mustard Greens

Has a peppery bite. Heat does not linger on the palate, but simply provides a sharp cleansing note with accents of horseradish and mustard.

Flat Leaf Parsley

Green herb with serrated leaves and a clean, slightly peppery taste. Its flavor is stronger than that of its ruffled cousin, curly-leaf parsley.

Powerhouse Leafy Romaine

Baby-leaf red romaine. Glossy, dark red, upright leaves with crisp texture. More tender than regular romaine and a little sweeter.

Premium Mix Greens

Colorful purple and green bok choy, scarlet frills, mustard greens, and wasabi mustard greens.

Ruby Red Orach

Leaves are deep purple and have a spinach-like flavor.

Romaine Lettuce

A very refreshing and juicy taste. Very crisp, ​with a slightly bitter taste. Not as sweet as iceberg, but not as “grassy” as spinach.

Watercress

A spicy scent with a slightly bitter, peppery, and tangy flavor when fresh. When cooked, the peppery flavor will slightly diminish.
