Several pilot vertical farms have been setup:
1. Valcent's VertiCrop vertical farming systems pilot plant at the Paignton Zoo Environmental Park in Devon, England
2. California high-tech greenhouses using vertical farming techniques (Houweling Nurseries);
3. A vertical farm using seawater in Dubai (architectural firm Studiomobile)
4. Rural Development Administration has built a prototype of a three-storey vertical farm in Suwon, near Seoul, South Korea, April 2012

These farms are still on trial to determine the suitability and feasability of growing crops indoors in multistorey buidings. There are no commercial vertical farms yet.
