The Farmery for Local Food

The Farmery is an integrated retailing and growing system for locally grown food that raises the value of the produce through a stimulating retail experience and reduces the costs of the produce by consolidating the entire food distribution system. The team aims to make a neighborhood urban farm as common as the corner store. The Farmery is able to offer an entire diet of mushrooms, fish, greens and herbs for prices that meet or beat organic supermarket prices. The Farmery is constructed of stacked shipping containers and greenhouses oriented form a vertical farm and u-pick market in an urban neighborhood. The Farmery uses a proprietary growing system to grow edible plants vertically on the sides of the shipping containers. The interior space of the shipping container is used to cultivate gourmet mushrooms.
