BIG PRODUCTION IN A SMALL FOOT PRINT
Built entirely inside a 40’ x 8’ x 9.5’ shipping container, freight farms are outfitted with all the tools needed for high-volume, consistent harvests. With innovative climate technology and growing equipment, the perfect environment is achievable 365 days a year, regardless of geographic location.
WHAT CAN YOU GROW?
Experience the freshness of a variety of lettuces like crunchy romaine, smooth butterhead, or delicate lola rosa.
High in nutritional value, rich in flavor, and vibrant in color, brassicas like kale, swiss chard and spicy arugula grow superbly well.
Enhance the flavor of any dish with fragrant herbs like sweet basil, peppery oregano or fresh mint.
WHAT YOU'll NEED
The LGM™ requires a hookup of a 60 amp, 120/240 volt single phase connection or 120/208 three phase connection. We recommend hiring a licensed electrician for installation at the time of delivery.
A designated water source is suggested, but it can be achieved with a common garden hose feed. The LGM™ water tanks are capable of automatic tank level management.
To keep operations running smoothly, a freight farmer will need the following items: seeds, nutrients, and equipment. These items can be purchased directly from the farmhand® Shop App.
Zach Bain of Lowell Lettuce launched his urban farm in the summer of 2016 in Lowell, Massachusetts, and is growing mini-head lettuce, kale, wasabi arugula, and salad mix year-round. Zach is an urban farmer, entrepreneur, and marketing consultant all rolled into one.
"An LGM gives a new hydroponic farmer the chance to launch their business VERY quickly. The learning curve is much shorter than if you had to start from scratch, because the FF team (and previous customers) have tested and tested the system. This lets you focus on building your market."
