Introducing the Urban Farm Shop

The Urban Farm Shop is a standardized 1/2 acre Farm and Shop under one roof. Applying a new community based year-round operational model for locally produced healthy food. Sold directly to end users coming to the Shop, to members of the CSA or through last-mile delivery.

This innovation reshapes the local food landscape, aligning with the vision of providing sustainable, delicious, and affordable choices for a healthier community. With zero food miles and no food waste.
The Urban Farm Shop helps solving problems with the availability of fresh and nutritious produce. It ensures community independence from food imports.
