Freight Farms is a leader in the agriculture technology industry. We were the first to introduce container farming with our flagship product: The Leafy Green Machine™.

 
 
 
 

The Leafy Green Machine™ is a complete, vertical hydroponic growing facility built inside a repurposed shipping container. The LGM™ is capable of growing lettuces, herbs, and hearty greens at commercial scale in any climate or location. It enables any individual, community, or organization to grow fresh produce year-round.

Every Farmer Needs a Farmhand®

 

The Leafy Green Machine™ is 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.

The Leafy Green Machine™ 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 the Leafy Green Machine™.

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. 

With the LGM™, there is no water run-off, preventing the contamination of natural water sources.
