This farm-in-a-box is built entirely inside a 40’ x 8’ x 9.5’ shipping container. The 2017 Leafy Green Machine™ by Freight Farms is 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.
Growing from seed to harvest allows for greater control over the food supply, and provides a clear story of exactly how food is grown.
Growing vertically inside the container maximizes space for food production and creates a high density growing environment.
Use farmhand® to monitor real-time data and control all the key components of the farm: air, water, nutrients, and plant growth.
The LGM™ comes fully-equipped with all components needed for immediate production.
Perfect environment is achievable year-round with the use of climate controls, regardless of geographic location.
The system is designed and engineered for easy operation, allowing users of all backgrounds to immediately start growing.
With an internet connection users are able to stay connected to their operation anywhere in the world, 24/7. With farmhand® it’s possible to monitor and control all the environmental components inside the farm directly from a web browser or iOS device.
Users can set parameters and receive notifications about in-farm system performance. Climate tracking, surveillance, and data logging makes food safety and transparency a breeze.
Inside each insulated container is a complete hydroponic growing system with all the components needed for commercial food production.
Climate conditions are measured and controlled by an in-farm controller to achieve optimal growing conditions, regardless of the exterior environment. Environmental sensors balance temperature, humidity and CO2 levels to maintain perfect climate for crop development.
Water quality is measured and controlled through temperature, pH and EC sensors located inside the tanks. Patented high-efficiency LED lighting system mimics sunlight and delivers the optimal wavelengths for uniform plant growth.
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.
Designed to be easily implemented and operated, the 2017 LGM™ is a complete farming system delivered ready-to-use for immediate crop production. The modular and stackable design makes it easy to integrate into any new or existing operation. The LGM™ comes equipped to handle every aspect of commercial production, from seed to harvest.
Our designated system is designed specifically for germination and seedling growth. A custom-designed aluminum workstation with an integrated hydroponic setup is outfitted with ebb and flow irrigation and LED lighting systems that can nurture up to 3,600 plant sites.
Vertical towers create a high density growing environment inside the farm, providing space for over 4,500 plants in 256 towers. An overhead drip irrigation system and strip LED lighting support crop growth from transplant to harvest.
