CONTAINER FARMING

February, 2016

Farm in a BoxRetired ocean containers have been used for housing, restaurants, playgrounds, even art, but here is a new take, farming.

Freight Farm, a Boston-based company, is recycling ocean containers into farms  These high-tech growing environments have climate control, automatic lighting and irrigation systems which can be monitored and controlled via a mobile app.

Each container produces the same yield as an acre of traditional farming while using 90% less water and no pesticides…in just 320 square feet of space. They are a perfect solution to the growing “farm to fork” movement.
