FARM: design, build and operate sustainable urban farms and innovative growing systems.
We believe in city grown food that is fresh, tasty, sustainable and grown with our customers helping hands.
We cut carbon and reduce waste by using the latest agricultural innovations in aquaponics, hydroponics, vermiculture and greenhouse design.
FARM: launched in 2010 with the aim of bringing farming into the city.
1) To excite and inspire city dwellers to grow their own food and make an income doing this.
2) To create direct links between farms in the countryside with communities in cities
3) To grow food commercially via a network of FARM:'s across cities and retail this food at FARM:shop's
FARM: and FARM:shop are operated by Something & Son LLP, an eco-social design practice run by Andrew Merritt and Paul Smyth. Sam Henderson founded FARM:shop with Something & Son and now operates a successful farm in Dorset.
Something & Son combine art, engineering and business know-how to find creative ways to improve the world around us.
