What is Freight Farms?

Freight Farms is a Boston-based agriculture startup on a mission to create a more sustainable and connected food system. The flagship product, The Leafy Green Machine is a complete hydroponic growing facility built entirely inside a shipping container with environmental controls and indoor growing technology. The “LGM” allows for immediate growing of a variety of crops regardless of weather conditions resulting in access to year-round local, fresh produce that is always in season.
