Freight Farms is a Boston-based agriculture technology company that has the stated goal of enabling people to grow food within their community regardless of geographical location.
The company produces 40-foot shipping containers in which consumers can grow their own food. This container is called "The Leafy Green Machine".The container holds necessary tools and is also climate-controlled so that consumers can successfully and sustainably obtain their own food, cutting out most harmful emissions that are created by the mass transportation of food.
Freight Farms also has a maintainence wing of the company so that if a consumer should experience difficulties in operating the indoor farm, they may receive assistance and continue to grow produce.
The feature known as 'farmhand' is a digital platform on which consumers can manage, analyze, and remotely control their farms from anywhere in the world.
