What a Month!
It has been a little over a month since our Kickstarter project was successfully funded. Since then the momentum hasn't slowed down. We have received inspiring emails from our backers and followers encouraging us to bring Freight Farms to the world. We are humbled by all the interest we have been getting and we plan on using this first Freight Farm to introduce a sustainable new future for agriculture. This month has been one call after the next from communities, farmers and businesses that have a great need for local crop production. With such high demand we realize that it is important for us to offer Freight Farms to the world.
To help us look beyond the first unit, we have partnered with the Institute for Energy & Sustainability. This will connect us with the right resources to explore new technology that will enhance the Freight Farm's system and allow easy implementation in various environments.
We have big plans, but it starts with the first unit. We are working hard so that we will have the first Freight Farm built this May. In the meantime, it is time we formally thank you for believing in us. Yep, that's right... REWARDS!!!!
We are ordering reward materials this week in hopes that we will be able to get them to you by March. But to do that we need to know where to send them. We will send out a Backer Survey to get your mailing address and confirm the name you want to have listed on the exterior of the container.
Catch us @ 6pm this WEDNESDAY 2/8 at Mass Innovation Nights. We will have a demo of our system set up and be answering questions to those people who make it over to our booth.
Thanks for all your support. This is all possible because of our awesome backers!
