Biome Makers expanding client base, moving to larger HQ

Biome Makers, a global leader in soil microbiology, will be moving into a new 4,200-square-foot headquarters in Davis, California, early next year to accommodate growth at the company.

Construction and redesigning the space has already begun at 202 Cousteau Place in Davis. The company will start operating at the location in Jan 2023.

Biome Makers was operating out of the Bayer CS´s CoLaborator, a co-working space in West Sacramento, California, and needed to increase its space due to the company’s exponential growth.

“Our new larger facility was the necessary next step as we needed to expand our laboratory to reduce turnaround time (to) serve new clients and adapt to the growing global demand of BeCrop technology,” Adrian Ferrero, co-founder and CEO, said in a news release.

The company decided to stay in California, the World’s AgTech Hub, to support its many clients in the area.

“Davis is a global powerhouse for farming and agriculture research,” Ferrero said in the release. “Our headquarters in Davis allows us to engage with the strong agricultural community. This is our way to give back to the region that has supported us since our inception.”

Biome Makers was founded in San Francisco in 2015 by Ferrero and Alberto Acedo, who dreamed of taking action to recover soil health through science and technology. Today, their proprietary technology, BeCrop, is used in more than 40 countries, impacting over 417,000 hectares (more than 1.03 million acres) worldwide and empowering more than 8,000 farmers to adopt regenerative practices and recover soil health.

“We are very excited about the future of Biome Makers,” Ferrero said in the release. “This new location is a testament to our hard work and dedication to soil restoration and sustainable agriculture. The new Davis HQ will enable us to scale our operations and support the global demand for BeCrop technology, the industry standard for soil health.”
