US (MN): Urban farm grows fresh greens for restaurants and residents

Restaurants looking for locally-grown, fresh produce during the winter months must turn to a different type of farm, one in which the complete growing system is in a climate-controlled box. A farm in Shoreview, Frisk Fra Boksen (Fresh from the Box), uses that model. Their 320-square-foot shipping container can grow the same amount of greens you’d need 3.2 acres of traditional farmland to produce. Owners Barb and Chris Glasoe utilize vertical farming in a climate-controlled environment and sell to residents and many local restaurants. Demand is so high they’re considering buying another container farm.
