Winvale, a government contracts consulting firm and authorized GSA reseller, is excited to announce a partnership with Freight Farms, a leading provider of vertical container farming solutions. By partnering with Winvale, Freight Farms will be able to offer their vertical hydroponic farming containers through Winvale’s GSA Schedule GS-35F-0074S.
“Winvale’s partnership with Freight Farms is an incredible leap forward in food safety as well as availability,” said Jeff, President of Winvale. “No matter if it’s the USDA looking to expand fresh local produce in the areas that matters the most here in the United States, the Department of Defense providing safe and fresh food to our men and women of the Armed Forces globally, or organizations like the State Department and USAID helping people worldwide, Winvale and Freight Farms have the capability to make it happen.”
The demand for sustainable and local foods is growing, and Freight Farms was the first company to build a farm inside a shipping container with only a few simple site requirements.
Freight Farm’s flagship product, the Greenery ™ S, is a vertical hydroponic farm built entirely inside a shipping container. The mobility and simple set-up of these shipping containers is a game changer for the rapidly developing Agriculture technology (Ag tech) world. Everything an operator needs is fit into 320 square feet—operators can grow high-value crops 365 days a year such as leafy greens, herbs, roots, edible flowers and more. Since the containers are compact and mobile, they can be placed in urban, commercial, and residential areas, eliminating the need for several acres of available land.
The Greenery ™ S also pairs advanced farming techniques with the latest technology. Acting as a smart farm, the Greenery ™ S integrates with Freight Farm’s Farmhand® software to automate most of the farming process.
Freight Farms is a worldwide solution with container farms in 46 states and territories, and 34 countries totaling more than 500 farms operating today. Winvale is excited to partner with Freight Farms to bring their advanced farming solutions to government customers via our GSA Schedule.
