The way we get our food in the United States is completely messed up. When you go to the grocery store, especially in a city, most of the fresh fruits and vegetables you see have been trucked in from somewhere else, losing crucial nutritional value at an environmental cost. This is a huge problem, but Elon Musk’s brother has a solution…in the form of a shipping container.

    When I first heard Kimbal Musk talk about food, I wondered how long it would take for him to create something to revolutionize the world….
    This may be the start of that creation…

    you could also just plant your plants outside !!!
    -the sun shines for free on your plants
    -the water falls for free from heaven
    and try to tronsport the plants just faster

    Dumb. Energy inefficient & not sustainable.
    How many decades has this "Farm of the Future" idea been recycled?
    Who in the HELL would want to work 40 hrs. a week in that pink light prison cell? Good grief, THINK!

    Beme is moving in the right direction. Too bad Casey's no longer on board, but you'll do great without him now.

    so I'm thinking to myself, how is this guy ever going to sell trailer box farming technology and then we get to 1:30 in he video and all my guilty suspicions about this technologies target market are confirmed. This guy is going to do well, lots of spinach farmers in Colorado! LOL!

    I'm not really sure that nutrition loss from shipping food is a problem or even if it's something that really happens. The way I see it it doesn't matter where the food is from, because of the conservation of mass as long as the food is properly preserved it doesn't change. That side of this video seems very much underdeveloped, which leaves only this horribly inefficient method of farming that gets shown off in the video. Seems really uninformative I'm disappointed.

    95% less water than a farm?  Farms rely on rain for water.  And you can't make the argument that this "can" farm is so energy efficient when you are using lights to grow the plants and real farms use the sun!

    QUESTION: All the products grown in these containers seem to be be leafy greens. Is it also possible to grow heavier vegetables such as tomato, carrot, zucchini etc? I'm guessing fruits are off the table since they grow on trees…
    Anyone able to answer this? Cheers
