An addition to Indoor Farms of America’s farm model is a Container Farm that is specially designed for operation by those utilizing wheeled mobility.
“This farm, at a capacity of 4,550 plants, has higher yield potential than any other container farm, using our unique vertical equipment, which we have customized to be operated 100% from the position of a wheelchair. Every task, from daily record keeping, farm monitoring, seedling tray preparation, transplanting and harvesting, every aspect is operable by a disabled person who still has the use of their arms and hands, with certain tools we use in the farm,” states David Martin, co-founder and CEO of Las Vegas-based Indoor Farms of America LLC, in a media release.
According to Martin, the company is finalizing designs for an automated feature that will make the farm even easier to operate, and will announce its production readiness soon.
