Introducing Grown by Freight Farms, our on-site farming subscription service. Our new service is designed to not only power a hyper-local CSA program, but also seamlessly integrate fresh greens into an existing foodservice operation. The best part? There’s no farmland or additional staff required.
At Freight Farms, we've worked with over a dozen campuses to integrate hydroponic produce into dining services. Read on as we explore all the ways a Leafy Green Machine can transform your campus culture and identity.
At Freight Farms, our success is measured directly by the success of our farmers. That's why the Marketing Team is always available to give professional advice to Freight Farmers as they launch their Leafy Green Machine™ and start their new business.
The Leafy Green Machine™, our climate-controlled, indoor, hydroponic growing system, requires no previous farming experience to operate. However, those already managing successful farms can reap extra benefits.
Freight Farms is thrilled to announce a partnership with Federal Realty Trust to help seamlessly activate underutilized parking spaces on select properties across the United States for fresh food production.
You might think that fitting an entire farm into a 40’ x 8’ x 9.5’ shipping container would lead to a cramped working environment, but the LGM was designed to maximize the amount of physical space inside the farm.
Unlike traditional farming, the LGM requires only about twenty hours of labor per week to grow the same amount of food that you could grow on two acres of farmland inside a 320 square foot shipping container.
Last week we held a webinar with two freight farmers so they could share their journey to launching a small business with the LGM. We covered everything from market research and financing to what crops to grow and how to reach new customers. Here's a recap!
