Could we one day get our produce from your local freight container? Freight Farms could be the first to make it a reality. Founded in 2010 by Brad McNamara and Jon Friedman, Freight Farms manufactures large indoor farms inside freight containers. With advanced technology and the benefit of being closed in, Freight Farms can be located anywhere and still grow fresh produce.
With the cost being $82,000 for the container and approximately $13,000 per year to operate, Freight Farms may be the next step to getting fresh local produce in locations with the harshest weather conditions.
