This is a positive trend given that local farming reduces adverse CO2 emissions from moving food long distances. If you would like us to review and profile your company, just let us know! Contact Us.
Company Profile: Tiger Corner Farms Manufacturing
Here is a great example of a company specializing in aeroponics.
Here is some of the “About Us” content: We’re a team of builders, growers, geeks, problem solvers, foodies, parents, engineers and enthusiasts designing farm systems that transform the way we eat. Our aeroponic container farms were born from a dream that every individual deserves access to healthy food—and that dream starts right here at our home in South Carolina. Our mission is to create container farm systems that power healthier, sustainable communities. Housed in recycled shipping containers, the TCFM aeroponic farm system is customized with an innovative cloud-based control system that allows growers 24-hour, 365-day monitoring of each plant from seed to sale and the ability to adjust any farm system setting from any computer, tablet, or mobile device. A single farm can be grown in any climate, in any location, using 98% less water than traditional farming—a healthy, fresh, and sustainable approach to achieving bountiful harvests in a small space. Tiger Corner Farms Manufacturing is locally owned and operated in Summerville, SC.
