Freight Farms

Founded in 2010, the Freight Farms mission is to create a more sustainable and connected food system by providing the tools that enable fresh food production in any environment. Farms are operating in cities across the United States and Canada, creating year-round access to local, fresh produce for restaurants, universities, corporate campuses, hotels, and small businesses. Designed to be easily implemented and operated, a freight farm is delivered ready-to-use and configured for immediate crop production. Built entirely inside a 40’ x 8’ x 9.5’ shipping container, units are outfitted with all the tools needed for high-volume, consistent harvests. With innovative climate technology and growing equipment, the perfect environment is achievable 365 days a year regardless of geographic location. The modular and stackable design makes it easy to integrate into any operation and add more farms to scale production, giving users the flexibility to move and grow as the market demands.
