Farmshelf Home FAQ
What is the size of Farmshelf Home?
Farmshelf Home is 36”w x 20”d x 62”h which is about half the size of Farmshelf Business.
What crops can I grow?
Farmshelf Home will offer a variety of leafy greens, herbs, edible flowers, microgreens, and cherry tomatoes. See what we’re offering now.
How do I start growing?
There’s a monthly subscription which includes unlimited seed pods, nutrients, and Farmcloud remote monitoring.
How much produce can I grow?
It will vary by crop, but you can expect up to two pounds a week. It will be more than enough produce for a family of four to six people.
What if I don’t have a green thumb?
No problem! Farmshelf is designed to be easy for anyone to grow their own nutritious food. You simply add water (we tell you when and how much), insert your seed pods, and then harvest when the crops are mature. We take care of the rest through advanced monitoring of pH, nutrients, temperature, and more.
Will it work anywhere in my home?
All you need is a standard wall outlet and Wi-Fi network. The Farmshelf comes with lighting built-in, so proximity to a window is not necessary. You have the option of in-line plumbing or a refillable water tank so it can easily fit into your living room, dining room or even home office.
What are nutrients and what are they made of?
Nutrients are plant food! The nutrients we use are created from natural elements–providing the plants with the same nutrition that organic fertilizers would and the same spectrum of nutrients you’d find in natural soil. They come in a liquid form as part of your subscription and are ready to use.
What are the effects on the environment?
Farmshelf turns food miles into food feet by eliminating long shipping distances. The system uses 90% less water than traditional farming. There is no clamshell packaging. By harvesting only what you need, there should be very little food waste.
Is Farmshelf available internationally?
Farmshelf is only available for pre-order in all 50 U.S. states at this time. Keep up with us on our website or social media for availability updates.
