Container farming can elevate any cafeteria, capturing the imagination and interest of kindergarten students, college seniors, and hardworking adults alike. It is never too early or too late to get people (young and old!) interested in health, nutrition, and sustainability!
The concept is simple: we handle all the farming operations and deliver the produce directly to you every week! Grown by Freight Farms makes it easy to integrate farm-to-table greens in your existing dining operations, or start a CSA for your community.
Freight Farms provides today’s modern corporate, university, or high school campus the opportunity to seamlessly integrate sustainable food production into current operations to make high-quality, local food a staple of the campus culture. Each farm offers a unique flexibility to create tailored programs to meet the specific needs of each campus. Our farms are powerful tools for promoting health and wellness, sustainability and innovation while fostering a culture of social responsibility.
Demonstrate a commitment to sustainability by growing food directly on campus year-round.
Promote student and employee health and wellness by serving produce harvested just hours before consumption.
Bring transparency to operations
and educate students and employees on the journey their food takes.
"Actually working in a hydroponic farm makes it so real. That’s why I’ve been so thankful that Chartwells decided to invest in students. Chartwells has invested so much into me, and they want to make sure that students here get involved in things they’re passionate about."

"I absolutely love this job–it's not considered a job for me, this is like a fun after-school activity. It's one of the greatest things I've done in this university: just having other people eat freshly grown, organic, crops that we grow."

"[Fresh Ideas] had a vision of sustainability for the future they wanted to see: not only making and crafting food, but also producing their own food in an efficient, sustainable way...This is a way to enjoy the flavors of fresh produce like maybe you never have before–this is like having a farmers market right on campus and something that your friends and classmates have had a hand in growing."
“An important piece for Sodexo is our ‘Better Tomorrow Plan’ [which] specifically focus on individuals, our communities, and our environment…Freight Farms has given us a great opportunity to have that engagement with students on a higher level, especially with sustainability.”
