If you are a supermarket, restaurant, food distributor, or are in anyway involved in the F&B industry, you’ve faced some familiar pain points, and we can help you.

BIG PRODUCTION IN A SMALL FOOTPRINT

10 Weeks to delivery

This farm-in-a-box is built entirely inside a 40’ x 8’ x 9.5’ shipping container.
The 2017 Container Farm™ by S&A Containers is outfitted with all the tools needed for high-volume, consistent harvests.
With innovative climate technology and growing equipment, the perfect environment is achievable 365 days a year, regardless of geographic location.

OPERATIONAL TRANSPARENCY

OPERATIONAL TRANSPARENCY

Growing from seed to harvest allows for greater control over the food supply, and provides a clear story of exactly how food is grown.

REMOTE MONITORING

REMOTE MONITORING

Monitor real-time data and control all the key components of the farm: air, water, nutrients, and plant growth.

YEAR-ROUND GROWING

YEAR-ROUND GROWING

Perfect environment is achievable year-round with the use of climate controls, regardless of geographic location.

VERTICAL FARMING

VERTICAL FARMING

Growing vertically inside the container maximizes space for food production and creates a high density growing environment.

The system is designed and engineered for easy operation, allowing users of all backgrounds to immediately start growing.

Here is a simple and realistic breakdown of actual production numbers from outdoor production (by the acre) and a container farm.

An acre is about 40,000 square feet. A container farm is 400 square feet, or 1% of an acre.

An acre is about 40,000 square feet. A container farm is 400 square feet, or 1% of an acre.

Just to be clear, that means that to produce an acre of food (we’re going with a standard crop, lettuce) in 400 square feet, you’d have to multiply production by about one hundred times as much. To produce five acres of food in 400 square feet, you’d have to multiply production by five hundred times.
If you skip ahead you’ll see that a container farms can be expected to produce more like a quarter of an acre of produce, or twenty-five times as much.

So how much CAN a container farm produce?

So how much CAN a container farm produce?

Arizona and California combined represent 96% of U.S. lettuce production with 2 harvests per year. We’re also going to be conservative and assume the numbers for leaf lettuce, which is lighter than head lettuce.
For leaf lettuce, most producers harvesting 12 tons/acre/harvest. At two harvests per year, that’s 24 tons/acre/year. (48,000 pounds) It’s slightly over one pound per square foot per year.

Our container farms, with vertical technology use 256 ZipGrow Towers per container with 13 heads per Tower and 10.4 harvests per year (using 5 week turns). Depending on the size of the heads being grown (determined mostly by growing conditions and care), this could result in anywhere from 2.16 tons to 6.48 tons per year.

Great Potential

Great Potential

At 2 oz/head… 2.16 ton/year (this is the most realistic number) This would equate to 9% of an acre, or 10x the production per square foot of outdoor production. Not bad.
At 4 oz/head… 4.32 ton/year This would equate to 18% of an acre, or 20x the production per square foot of outdoor production.
At 6 oz per head… 6.48 ton/year This would equate to 27% acre, or 30x the production per square foot of outdoor production

As you can see, the production potential of a container farm is, at a minimum, equals 10x the production per square foot of an outdoor production.
