Starting a farm is nearly impossible to the farmer with low capital, no crew, and no farmland.

The ZipFarm is a vertical hydroponic system consisting of a Light Rack (1) to holdLumiGrow LED lights (3), and three individual ZipRacks (2) outfitted with ZipGrow Towers (4).
The entire growing operation fits under the Light Rack, a 6 foot X 7.6 foot (or 9.6 foot) X 18 foot steel rack. Where other systems must fit into facilities hundreds of feet long and scale by huge areas, the ZipFarm can be scaled in these small units.
The ZipRacks are on wheels, making the racks easy to move around your space. One person can move several ZipFarms in just a few minutes, making maintenance and cleaning easy. All plumbing is connected with quick-connect fittings, which require a just a simple hand movement to connect and disconnect, so adding ZipRacks is a quick and simple affair.
The ZipFarm uses hydroponics, a soil-less growing technique, and delivers the perfect nutrient ratios to plants via water. The water is mixed in the main sump tanks, and an optional add-on may be selected to control pH and nutrient levels automatically. Unlike many indoor growing system, the ZipFarm uses vertical growing planes. This increases production by square foot while keeping labor costs down.
