Regarding this solar sunlight type system, we have gotten many inquiries about this facilities, also a lot of customers toured at our farm.
On the other hand, customers said us, "It is not large-scale, which is desirable to be a facility that can be started easily."
So, we Granpa System Engineering (GSE) will collaboration with Freight Farm Company in Boston, the US. We will begin selling Leafy Green Machine in Japan.
The LGM is an upcycling container (40 feet) equipped with environmental control and LED lighting hydroponic cultivation.
This creates the ideal growing environment for leafy greens, with minimal water use and no need for crop protection. Using vertical towers maximizes growing space in the container and makes it possible to harvest up to 1.000 heads of lettuce a week, with only 20 to 15 hours of labor.
These days few people know where their food is coming from, especially in cities. The Leafy Green Machines change this. LGM’s are very well fit for urban farming. Growing in an LGM is also financially attractive. A starting ‘freight farmer’ is able to begin a scalable startup without giant investments. The computer systems in the container can be controlled remotely through the Farmhand App, complete with harvest schedules, remote technical support and a webshop for farming supplies.
