Our [farm] gives us the ability to sustain a broader product line throughout the year and sustain our revenue and employee base over the winter.
— Jon Shaw of Karma Farm, Monkton, MD
Right now half of our farm is dedicated to our CSA program and the other half is for restaurant and retail sales. It amazes me every week how much we can grow.

IntroDUCTION to LGM

The 2017 Leafy Green Machine™ is a powerful tool that enables our customers to grow fresh food in any climate. The LGM™ requires only about twenty hours of labor per week to operate, and uses about 90% less water than traditional farming. The LGM™ also eliminates a lot of the risk and weather variability that traditional farmers face such as having not enough, or too much water and sunlight.

What can grow

As its name implies, the 2017 Leafy Green Machine™ is optimized to grow a variety of leafy green crops from lettuces, to herbs, to heartier greens like kale and swiss chard. However, our farmers have had success with a number of other crops as well. We recommend that in order for farmers to maximize their yields (and profits), they grow one to two crops that can thrive in similar growing environments.

Workflow and automation

The LGM™ was designed to maximize the amount of physical space inside the farm. It has a number of features that allow farmers to have enough space for every step of the farming process. The technology and automation inside the farm simplify the hydroponic growing process, allowing you to work smarter rather than harder. Sensors inside the farm balance temperature, humidity and CO2 levels.
