First Nation Growers Fresh Foods Garden Farm Systems are a perfect way to circumvent the high costs of grocery store shopping or provide products for your local community garden farmer’s market. The systems cater to vegetarians and concerned healthy fresh produce customers. The Garden Farm System is perfect and affordable for both large commercial community garden farms and or smaller residential use, where each system can be tailored to meet individual and or your community needs.
FNG Garden Fresh Foods Farm Systems are each capable of producing over 1,000 plants per month at a fraction of the energy cost of a typical greenhouse and or farms. Each unit provides the equivalent fresh produce of 1 acre of land at a portion of the time and costs of a traditional outdoor farm.
Natural, tasty, nutritionally rich, fresh produce, vegetables, fruit and or herbs can often be on your plate the very same day you harvest and can produce many more fresh produce greens than you can imagine.
Fresh Produce Cost Example
Freshly grown produce will be available within the community at a fraction of the cost that indigenous and Inuit families are being asked to pay for today.
For example, one head of lettuce shipped today to a remote community, frankly is not fresh and may be as old as 7 to 12 shipping days alone and carries a cost from $15.00 to $25.00 per head of lettuce. The same head of lettuce is grown within the community by local members for less than $1.25 per head of lettuce in production costs, regardless of indigenous and Inuit community remoteness, “year round.”
