WHAT WE DO
Our objective is to support the development of healthy & productive local agriculture, by providing knowledge and technological solutions to urban & vertical farmers.
- We manufacture and distribute ZipGrow™ growing hardware – including towers, indoor farming systems.
- We provide consultancy, training & support to vertical farming projects throughout Europe & beyond.
- We run a pilot-farm in Lyon, France, as a demonstration and R&D site.
WHY WE DO IT
Everyone would prefer to eat fresh healthy local produce. But modern agriculture is based on intensive large-scale mono-crop farming. It runs on oil and chemicals and needs much more resources than this planet can provide. It is neither healthy for the planet nor for farmers and does not produce healthy and tasty food.
Refarmers is about reinventing local farming. Providing nutritious, tasty, fresh food wherever people may live: in the city, in the desert, in the mountain. Making the smartest use of resources, and eventually running on what’s locally and ecologically available, like recycled organic waste and renewable energy. This is an ambitious vision and we are working hard towards it, one step at a time.
