Imagine the ability to grow a one-acre farm in a 320 square foot box right in the middle of London, New York or Los Angeles, what would this do for restaurateurs?

Well, Kickstarter funded entrepreneurs Brad McNamara and Jon Friedman have made that possible. Freight Farms introduces a scalable farming platform that can be operated anywhere by up-cycling shipping containers into a source for high-yield crop production.

The produce grown in one week is equivalent to what grows on one acre in one year. Containers cost $60,000.
