webinar | Acre in a box
Andrew Abendshein launched Acre In a Box in 2016 along with the help of his colleagues Ana, Drew, and Julia. The four's combined passion for sustainability and local food was what inspired them to launch their urban hydroponic farming business in downtown Houston, Texas, where they supply several farm-to-table restaurants and (most recently a grocery store) with their hyperlocal produce.
On September 25th, 2017 we interviewed Andrew to learn more about his journey to becoming a Freight Farmer and what it's like to run two farms while still having a day job.
This webinar covers:
Market Research & Business Model Development
Finding the Perfect Site
Choosing the right crops to grow
Business Operations vs. LGM Operations
Don’t have time for the hour-long webinar? Not to worry! We summarized the entire conversation on the Freight Farms Blog.
