“Self-sufficient and easy supply of nutritious food in the urban habitat”

Grow and offer trendy Asian mustard vegetables, unusual herbs, edible flowers or rare salads, regardless of season and location; it’s an innovative company’s dream.

However, if the selection and yield exceed the possibilities of the average balcony or garden, this dream quickly ends for restaurants, bars, hotels and canteens. With Farmie’s plug & play hardware solution for vertical farming, today’s vegetable growers need just one square meter of space and a single power outlet. The result: 50 different plant varieties, of which a total of 720 can be harvested each month. With Farmie, users get a step ahead of the game when it comes to food handling.

In addition, with the integrated seed drawer, unique on the market, the success of the yield is guaranteed with less than 200 kW/h of electricity consumption per month, even without the green thumb. farmie is an automated plug-and-play hydroponics system. This means that Farmie automatically takes care of nutrients, light and ventilation.

Only water has to be added manually to avoid costly and time-consuming connections. However, the farmer himself determines when irrigation is activated. Thanks to cloud-based monitoring, the user can reliably monitor the condition of the plants via cameras, and farmie will notify the user of any disturbing factors. Vertical farmers can individually decide which green plants to sow.
