Who are they?

Cornish essential oils are a start-up based in Callington, Cornwall. The small farm aims to produce the highest quality lavender, mint, and, lemongrass essential oils.

What they needed

Cornish essential oils were looking for a way of expanding their oil production into mint and lemongrass. They are building upon the research carried out by plant factory Cornwall to adapt the oil concentration within their crops to produce the highest quality oils.

What we delivered

We are providing them with a converted 20ft shipping container fully equipped for indoor farming. With precise control over light frequency, climate and crop nutrients they will be able to adapt specific “recipes” for repeatedly and reliably growing the highest quality crops.

Additional to this vertical farm we are providing a supplementary lighting system for their poly tunnel that will adapt to natural light to create the optimal propagation conditions for their lavender plugs.
