Why does ZipGrow technology exist?
ZipGrow: Empowering the farmer.
Vertical farming should come at a profit, not a cost.
Many vertical farms are built in a way that makes it harder for the farmer to farm. But we think that the benefits of vertical farming shouldn’t come at the cost of the farmer.
That’s why we design a product that is accessible, simple, and scaleable.
When farmer and consumer are one
The ZipGrow Tower is at the core of everything we do. Because it’s so simple, ZipGrow belongs in any operation, whether small or large.
From the guy farming in his shed to the manager of an automated warehouse farm, ZipGrow puts the power in the hands of any person who wants to grow. This accessibility is blurring the line between those who produce and those who consume.
Farming no longer has to be a full-time job.
ZipGrow Towers require 60% (or more) less labor than other hydroponic or aquaponic methods. That means that farming is no longer full-time occupation.
Just look at our Upstart Farmers, who are engineers, film editors, coaches, teachers, and soldiers by day and changing the future of food in the evenings and over the weekends.
Farmers are more supported than ever before
We’re known for our dense collection of high-quality resources.
That help and support doesn’t stop coming after you purchase. You’ll work with an Upstart Farmers expert to answer your questions about growing, marketing, and management. You’ll also be a part of the Upstart Farmers Community, exchanging ideas, collaborating, and learning from small farmers like yourself.
How much can you grow?
|Square Feet||Towers||Lbs. of herbs/month||Lbs. of greens/month|
*Lbs. of herbs/month and lbs. of greens/month assumes 100% production of either herbs or greens. These production levels cannot be achieved simultaneously.
