Growing More, Using Less
Sustainable, pure, and healthy agriculture. FreshBox Farms is changing the way they farm: reducing their ecological footprint; shortening distances from production to consumption - providing people with fresher, healthier, tastier produce.
Much Less Water
Traditional agricultural practices take water for granted. Irrigation systems in modern farms can be inefficient and wasteful. In fact, over 90% of the water used in traditional agriculture simply evaporates. Each FreshBox vegetable is provided with only the water it needs, and no more. They use greater than 99% less water than traditional agriculture.
Much Less Land and Trasportation
Traditionally crops have been grown in flat fields, in one layer, across millions of acres. This is not at all practical in a city, or even in a suburb. FreshBox Farms solves that problem - their BoxFarms are in cities and suburbs. The enclosures can be placed in warehouses or even in buildings, on various floors.
Skyscrapers could be the new farmland. They can grow the equivalent of multiple acres of land (between 2 and 19, depending on the vegetable being grown) in one enclosure. This, of course, also means the vegetables don't travel very far to get to people's tables.
No Pesticides or Herbicides
Poisons do not belong in the food you eat. Because FreshBox vegetables grow in a controlled enclosure, they don't have to fight off bugs, bacteria, and other nasties. And that means no pesticides or herbicides go into the water supply or onto the leaves, or most important, into the food!
FreshBox Farms' foods are never from genetically modified organisms (GMO). They obtain incredibly high, consistent food yields by using smart MECHANICAL techniques and digital monitoring - creating the perfect envrionment for their plants. They don't need GMOs to increase their yields or be pest-resistant.
