URBAN FARMING

New ag-tech & lighting technologies allow to bring farming into the heart of the city, opening a world of opportunities.

REFARMERS has worked on all types of urban farming projects: indoor farms, rooftop greenhouses, container farms, in-store micro-farms. For big retailers and start-ups alike.

Leverage our expertise to jumpstart your project: we can design & plan your project, provide & install your farming systems, offer training & technical support.

ROOFTOP FARMS

Rooftop farms are great to make the best of these widely unused surface areas. They do come with specific technical & operational challenges. We have contributed to several rooftop greenhouse projects, with feasibility study, financial planning, technical design as well as climate engineering and building integration through our partners. These projects include Cultivate, Paris biggest rooftop greenhouse project, as well as the Luxemburg construction industry association.

INDOOR & CONTAINER FARMS

Indoor farms maximize productivity and offer consistent yields & quality year-round. This typically requires higher upfront and operational costs but makes local farming possible in regions that do not have an appropriate climate for conventional farming.

It also allows integration of farming practically everywhere in and around the city. We designed indoor farms for customers with a variety of sites: basement with pillars, warehouse, first floor, shipping container. Our customers include Swedish pioneers Björkekull, Ljusgarda & SweGreen, as well as Liverpool start-up Farm Urban: check out our projects section.

IN-STORE FARMS

In-store farms literally put fresh food in the hands of consumers, offering freshly cut or even live produce. They obviously need a different setup, with small systems that can fit into dense retail spaces. Vertical gardens are a great solution, as they maximize visual impact. Shelve systems can be better suited for baby leaves or microgreens. Beyond the technical solution, these projects typically need specific business models and processes. Check out the Live Sales service we set up for Carrefour in Madrid.

VERTICAL GARDENS & MICRO-FARMS

Fitting in any buildings. They look great and make people feel good. They can be combined with educational or recreational services. We think they should be in every office, school, elderly house or hospital!
