Introducing the Greenery

The next generation of container farming is here. The Greenery is the culmination of years of development and learning from hundreds of Freight Farmers. Today, we're unveiling our fundamentally redesigned farm, featuring high-density plant panels, industry-leading LEDs, and fully customizable growing rows.

Here for Grown?

On September 12th we unveiled Grown by Freight Farms, the world’s first on-site vertical farming service. We provide the farm, we provide the farmer, and our customers keep the produce.

It’s the easiest way to bring local food to any business, school, restaurant, or community. Our new program can seamlessly integrate with any foodservice operation, or support year-round CSA programs—no farmland or additional staff required.

Freight Farms is a leader in the agriculture technology industry, and was the first to introduce container farming.

 
 
 
 

Freight Farms are complete, vertical hydroponic growing facilities built inside shipping containers. Our farms are capable of growing lettuces, herbs, and hearty greens at commercial scale in any climate or location. They enable any individual, community, or organization to grow fresh produce year-round.

Every Farmer Needs a Farmhand®

 

Our farms are outfitted with environmental controls and indoor growing technology, which can be monitored and adjusted using Freight Farm's complimentary technology platform: farmhand®.

 
 

The farmhand® platform allows you to easily run your farm remotely. View farm performance, get alerts for any unscheduled changes, and restock supplies.

our freight farmers

Here at Freight Farms, we are proud to work with several inspiring individuals who are striving to make a difference in their communities. Some of our Freight Farmers are experienced soil farmers, some are launching new ventures, and others are farming to bring fresh food to their campus community. Regardless, all are passionate about growing local and fresh food.

 
I was motivated to become a Freight Farmer because of my desire to turn our family farm into a sustainable business.

We have an incredible opportunity to address the challenges facing rural economies by supporting sustainable agriculture businesses.

On harvest days I deliver the lettuce around 10:30, lunch service starts at 11, so students are getting produce that was harvested just a half an hour ago.

but... how does it work??
 

Every day our team members get phone calls and emails with questions about how our farms can grow on a commercial scale in such a small space. Our answer? It's simple! All you need is water, electricity, basic supplies, and a little bit of hard work. 

 
 
 

Container farms can produce a variety of greens – lettuces, hearty greens, herbs, and more – which our farmers sell for profit directly to customers, through CSAs, and wholesale to restaurants and grocers.

 

 
 
 

 

Leaf A small Footprint

 

There are significant environmental benefits to farming and feeding communities with container farms.

Many of our farmers sell their produce hyper-locally. By bringing food production to the end consumer, the impact of food transportation is drastically reduced.

The container's closed environment keeps unwanted organisms out, eliminating the need for farmers to use any harmful herbicides or pesticides.

 
 

The use of hydroponics allows the farms to use 90% less water than traditional farming methods. 

Container farming creates no water run-off and doesn’t contaminate natural water sources.
