Farm in Shipping Containers: Freight Farms
Freight Farms, a company conceived via a 2013 Kickstarter campaign is changing the agriculture world. They transform used 40 foot shipping containers into fully functional farms they call the “Leafy Green Machine”. The foot print is smaller and more efficient than conventional farmland. Each Shipping Container is fully outfitted with vertical hydroponics, a patented LED lighting system. They have developed a fully closed innovative system allows you to monitor and regulate growing conditions to perfection. It supports up to 4500 plants at once, multiple stages of growth, 365 days a year.
