About

Get ready to grow your favorite herbs and spices at home and with your support we can make it available for everyone.

We believe that local farming is the first step to deliver fresh tasty fruits and vegetables. With this goal in mind, Ecobird has started to develop a product line based on Aquaponics.

Aquaponics is a food production system that combines conventional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment where the waste of the fish is used as a natural fertilizer and the plants clean the water.

3 reasons why you should have the EcoFarm

1 ) You can grow basil, thyme or other herbs without worrying whether the plants have enough water or nutrients. 

2 ) Grow healthy, tasty and Ecological food in your own kitchen 

3 ) It is also a self-cleaning fish tank

 PLANNING

Risks and challenges

In the process from prototyping to production-ready there are many variables that can go wrong and might be considered as risks.

The good news is that we have set up a team with experienced people and we will be working with manufacturers who have years of experience with this kind of products. Making this process risk as lower as possible.

COMPETITION: Arise of similar products from the hand of big manufacturers

MANUFACTURING: The production technique for producing the water tank and grow bed is injection molding. It is really expensive to make the molds and requires expert knowledge to get it right. 30 day lead time to create the molds for this product with chances of delays is other risk to consider.

RETAILERS: As small startup we have the risk regarding to the conditions in terms of payment and delivery with the main retailers. We don't have enough funds to afford for example 120 days payment after delivery.
