Next Generation ‘Farm from a Box’ : Solar Powered Farm for Living Off Grid


The Next Generation “Farm from a Box”, brings individuals or communities a modified shipping container that allows them to prosper by creating their own sustainable agriculture. A shipping container solar powered farm would be wonderful to have in disaster struck areas of the world.

They could be flown in and dropped off, allowing a community to start building and growing organic food immediately. Powered by the sun, these shipping containers come with a system that includes: Sustainable Farming Practices, Technology Use and Maintenance, and Basic Business and Entrepreneurship Training.

The “Farm in a Box” comes with the necessities to build a 2 acre farm. The company wants to empower people and create independence by strengthening communities from the ground up. Each system can be specifically designed per the buyers needs. Depending on the climate and resources, each Farm will differ. These farms cam be used for: Humanitarian Aid, Post-Crises rebuilding efforts, Community cooperatives, Un-intentional communities, Refugees and Displaced Persons, Schools and Education, Churches, HOA’s, Urban Food Deserts, and even the Backyard Gardener.

‘Farm from a Box” offers off-grid weather systems and sensor technology, geo-spatial mapping software and market information, they provide access to information that will continuously improve the agricultural production.

The “Next Generation” Farms are here. I have even heard talk about “Mobile Barns”. In the future you could see many people towing their farms along with them behind their Motorhome or RV from location to location. A decentralized life is nearing for many families and fulltimers alike. I look forward to the day, when I am setup boondocking, and my neighbor has extended a fence off his mobile barn, to let his chickens free range. At that time, I will feel truly free, especially knowing that I can trade for eggs or something else of need. That will be the day!

If you want a solar powered farm, but would prefer to slowly build onto what you already have going, check out these solar panels on Amazon:

    • Having lived off grid for almost 10 years I can tell you that this fantasy requires a lot more than a shipping container filled with gadgets to manifest. It is a worthy goal but we need to stop pretending that local food and energy is just something plug and play like a new car. It’s an entire lifestyle change and it requires community of people and years of hard work. We need to be investing in entire communities sourcing food locally and supporting sustainable energy options at small scale levels (and that includes changing county zoning laws in many areas). No such thing as a farm in a box- sorry but that is a box that might grow some food if everything works right and still doesn’t guarantee you could sell that food for more than it cost you to produce it.

        The wheel is a little practical invention, but huge in materialization. Please, try to stretch a little bit of your vision in perspective. God Bless you.

  1. How much do these cost and where are the available from??? A very smart idea for areas that need to grow food. But you must have the land to do it on first, correct?

    • Nope theres a container with wespon systems and SOPs to conduct local area pressurised pacifism lol

  2. That box will be your coffin if that’s all you got!!!…. General tools, fuel, backup genny, solar panels, well drilling equipment, cistern, purification equip/filter, livestock, seeds, guns, dogs, fencing, chainsaw and milling equip, excavator, class 5 gravel for road building, sweat equity and so much more is required. Knowing how to fix things on the spot. Truck and trailer. ATV and snowmobile.

    It takes years to get it all done if you work solo. Most liberals have no idea how much labor it takes, they only know how to buy a box of shit and use their cell phones. The current generation can’t even change their tires or oil generally speaking. Let alone wire up a potentially deadly DC electrical system! Living in some areas with high bear population means GUNS and knowledge of how to kill, gut, and prepare the animal. In other words, if you are a vegetarian who is afraid of violence, you will not live in the wild (you would simply die).

    And yes, authority figures and the establishment will hate you every step of the way. When they see you fully loaded down in your car or truck, it is grounds to stop you and search you.
    You will be looked at funny, criticized, you name it….The crazier you act, the more space you’ll get!
