Farm-from-a-box

farm-in-box

This is a “real-world” idea: a 20-foot container that contains everything necessary to set up a 2-acre farm.  With the addition of a few animals (3 or 4 goats, a couple of pigs and 10 chickens) it could feed 10 people a year.  .

The preinstalled modules make the system as plug-and-play as possible.   This includes a photovoltaic system comprising of 10 high-efficiency solar modules, off-grid inverters, a transformer and distribution box and deep-cycle batteries for energy storage. The array is backed up by a 3,000-watt generator. The yellow drum is a water tank

Farm from a Box includes WiFi, irrigation system, solar panels, weather tracking devices, batteries and more. It also contains seedlings, farming equipment and a training program to provide communities with the tools the need to feed themselves.

It’s also equipped with high-efficiency LED lighting, secured storage, a mobile charging area, Wi-Fi and a remote monitoring solution. Also, seeds and farming tools .

Each unit is capable of producing crops for one hectare of land (2.47 acres).  This should be enough to support 10 people.  Although, it would be wise to add a few animals: Something like 3 or 4 goats, a similar number of pigs and 10 or 12 chickens

The farm also comes with a training program that covers ecological farming practices, technology use, maintenance and basic business and entrepreneurship.
