About us

Hi! My name is Denis and I’m the founder of Nufields. I'm a 31 year old former chef with a background and education in horticulture. 

Nufields aims to bring the farm into people’s homes. We supply seeds, kits, equipment, and expertise to help you on your growing journey. We want to make it as easy and accessible as possible to grow healthy, organic food literally anywhere.

Having lived in a busy city centre neighbourhood and in apartments all my life, I never had the opportunity to have my own “normal” garden. This led me to growing food wherever I could, turning rooftops, windowsills and walls into highly productive edible gardens.

Every person should and can have the tools and skills to grow their own food at home, regardless of where they live. We don’t need to rely entirely on a food supply chain that is responsible for 13.7 billion metric tons of CO2 emissions annually.

We are a small business which started in 2020 as an indoor vertical farm. Once covid forced our restaurant customers to close their doors, we started selling grow kits that use professional principles and techniques and fit on any windowsill or countertop.

From humble beginnings, we have now grown to a team of three, supplying our products and passion for growing food across Europe.

We won runner up in the DCCI business design challenge for our grow kits and came third in the National Startup awards in 2021.

Our mission is to promote alternatives to big carbon footprint, supermarket bought produce and to help educate city dwellers and the next generation that it’s easy, healthy and rewarding to grow food at home.

I hope you’ll join us in growing towards a healthier and more sustainable future.

 

Denis
