Follow the company to stay updated on their progress, including future investment opportunities
It is time to shift the focus from mass food production to food production by the masses, and reinvent the small farm. Let’s make healthy, nutritious food available to everyone.
An innovative off-grid toolkit for sustainable, tech-powered agriculture. It is the easiest and most efficient way to start and maintain a 2-acre planted farm.
The preinstalled modules make the system as plug-and-play as possible.
Let’s see what’s inside:
Includes micro-drip irrigation system ensuring precise water delivery. It’s easy-to-assemble and water efficient, which lowers labor and maintenance costs while saving water.
No grid access? no problem. Farm from a Box is powered by renewable energy, making it an independent, clean energy system that saves money.
Includes a solar-powered pump by Grundfos – the world's largest pump manufacturer – that can connect to different kinds of water supplies like ground well water or municipal line.
Each Box comes with a Wi-Fi enabled IoT (Internet of Things) system that helps to improve operational efficiency, optimize water and energy usage and provides the farmer with real-time data for decision making. Sensors monitor everything from solar panel performance and irrigation efficiency to soil conditions.
An reliable integrated technology from SMA, a leading global specialist for the decentralized and renewable energy supply, ensures energy is always available.
We've also packed basic hand tools into the Box including a broadfork, trowels and shovels, a seeder, wheel hoe, bed-prep rake and more.
The interchangeable components allow us to tailor the unit to different climates. Designed to conserve water, save energy, and help build a healthy soil, Farm from a Box enhances agricultural productivity with clean technology in a regenerative farming system. More production with less waste means more profit.
While Farm from a Box was initially designed as an alternative to food aid, the opportunity extended beyond aid and could provide an easy way to grow healthy food and earn an income.
Technology + sustainable farming = a smarter, better, more efficient production strategy.
We partnered with industry leaders in sustainability; combining “best-in-class” technology from globally recognized companies that ensure quality, longevity, and support. Including Netafim, pioneers of drip irrigation, SMA, a global leader in photovoltaic systems, and Grundfos, the world's largest pump manufacturer, and Cisco, the biggest networking company in the world.
Farm from a Box's patent pending design is engineered to expand a 20 ft. container to double in size upon deployment, without the need of any special equipment. The technology is pre-installed to make the system as plug-and-play as possible. The templated design and interchangeable components make it versatile and adaptable to different climates and users.
There are several containerized food production systems that we are often likened to. Most of those are hydroponic systems that grow leafy greens vertically, inside of the container. While vertical hydroponic systems are great, Farm from a Box has taken a different approach.
By providing the tools and technology to grow a complete farm outside, our system supports any kind of crop- creating greater options for the user. If nutrition is the goal it can support fruits, vegetables, and plant based proteins. If income generation is the goal it can support whatever high-value crops suit the local market.
Rebuilds soil and contributes to biodiversity
Supports any crop for more nutrients and market options

Our prototype farm is a success! The technology works and the farm is productive and efficient, with a bounty of crops. In order to prepare for large scale production and begin filling orders, we are launching our 2.0 units to refine the technology and develop our training program. We will also streamline our manufacturing and supply chains and expand our operational capacity in preparation for production.
We were building a Youth Empowerment Center in Kenya, using modified shipping containers around a soccer field to provide basic resources in education, health, and sport. But accessing fresh, nutritious food was a problem. Then it occurred to us - what if we could use a shipping container to provide the tools to start a farm and grow food right there? An all-in-one kit ... a "farm-in-a-box."
We spoke with some of the best minds in agriculture, biodiversity, and sustainable energy, farmers, government officials, and some of the largest aid providers in the world trying to understand what was needed and what could be done better. Their answer? We want the infrastructure to support reliable crop growth and the training to do it better. So that's what we built.
Together, we can build an industry-changing business that provides locally grown, healthy food to communities around the world.
Sometimes the best solutions are the most obvious – let’s give people the tools.
For people, planet and nutritious food for everyone!
