Indoor/outdoor automated container gardening.
The Urban Farm 20 for:
Pre-existing garden areas
Community Garden Areas
Stop digging, tilling, watering, and weeding. Just set out the UF-20 and replace your entire garden area. Plan on canning, freezing, or heading to the local farmers market. Exclusively tomatoes? 300-500lbs in 3 months of production.* Better to mix with squash, cucumbers, peas, and peppers. You'll need space because you'll have a jungle. And, btw, go on your summer vacation. The Urban Farm does the watering and feeding for you.
Exclusive Patent-Pending design. The Urban Farm automatically fills and drains nutrient from the reservoir to the planters 6-8 times/day, keeping your plants' rootzone aerated, flushed, and full of the nutrition vegetable plants need for heavy yield, sweet flavor, and large size.
It's important to remember that tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, melons, and eggplant can grow so large with such a heavy yield in The Urban Farm that vertical support is recommended. See How to grow tomatoes.
Custom Design for multiple UF-20's? No problem. We can design for large commercial applications as well. Call us with your requirements.

The Economics of The Urban Farm 20:
We'll use tomatoes in half and bell peppers in the other half for simplicity. Peppers are a slower growing and smaller plant so we always put 2 or 3 in each planter. Let's just say two colored bells per planter. Over the course of a long growing season it is very realistic to get 12-20 bells per plant (let's use 12). Colored bells in the store are $2 apiece. All told, the worth from 10 planters would be $480 or more, whether you bought or sold them.
Twenty-to-thirty pounds of tomatoes per plant/planter is also very realistic in our experience (let's use 20). Top quality heirlooms and hybrids in the store go for $4/lb and up. In 10 planters that equals a worth of $800 or more. Again, bought or sold.
Between the two you have a combined value of at least $1280 in one season.
This is why The Urban Farm represents such a good value. How many things have you bought in your life that have paid for themselves so quickly, if ever? Of course other vegetables don't value quite as much, but you still come out ahead of your purchase price in the first year alone, and the whole time you know what went into and on the food you eat. As they say, "That's priceless".
