About Farm from a Box
The need to provide a sustainable food supply both domestically and globally is significant and riddled with challenges. From dwindling natural resources to a lack of infrastructure that can support reliable crop growth, we need to provide communities with the tools to grow their own food locally and earn a livelihood.
In response, they developed a comprehensive solution that acts as the “Swiss-Army knife” of sustainable farming; a single, deliverable unit that contains all of the core components needed for a 2-acre farm. Powered by renewable energy, Farm from a Box is ideal for any application that requires a comprehensive system that enables sustained local food production, without the need for an existing grid.
