ZipGrow for Businesses & Entrepreneurs.

Farming with ZipGrow.

No matter what hydroponic farm business model you choose we can make your vision a reality.

ZipPod

The latest innovation in container farming is the ZipPod™. This fully functioning hydroponic farm in a composite-steel container is capable of growing food virtually anywhere on earth. From ultra-urban to extreme rural and anywhere in between, the ZipPod™ is a truly localized turn-key solution to a global problem.

ZipFarm™

The ZipFarm™ is a complete indoor farming system centered around the ZipGrow™ Towers. Our engineering team will custom design to your buildings specifications. Many of our modern-day farmers utilize warehouses or re-purposed office spaces and our expert team will build on-site with maximum production and workability in mind. Our modular and scalable Tower systems save you time and labor, maximize crop production and save 90-95% more water over other growing practices. Get yours engineered today!

ZipGrow™ Greenhouse

Growing produce in greenhouses has never been easier and more productive than using a ZipGrow™ system. Whether you are starting a new business or scaling up an existing one, our Greenhouse rack bundles are reliable, lightweight and grow up instead of out, maximizing your square footage and taking full advantage of natural daylight.

ZipGrow™ Towers

The ZipGrow™ Tower is at the core of all of ZipGrow farming systems. They are a specially designed and scientifically proven vertical hydroponic Tower that helps growers maximize production. Learn more about the revolutionary product that built the foundation of our sustainable company.

ZipGrow™ Education Rack

A low cost way to explore feasibility.  Every market is different, so why shouldn’t you be able to test your market before committing to a huge farm investment? The affordable Education Rack enables you to test with a real product and real numbers to determine the feasibility of a commercial farm in any location.

Farming with ZipGrow.

A farming system for every business owner & entrepreneur.

Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Entrepreneur farmers we work with often opt to be a CSA farmer when starting their business. This is using community-supported agriculture to negotiate an arrangement to sell food locally to other businesses and the community at large. This is a great way to support your local community! Maybe you’re already a CSA farmer, who wants to grow year-round. Growing indoors hydroponically allows you to extend your business into all seasons.

Business to Business (B2B)

Selling business to business involves planning, engineering and executing a project large enough to support daily sales to restaurants and grocery stores. There are many ZipGrow Farmers who have achieved great success with this business model.

Non-Profit Sector

Our ultimate goal at ZipGrow is to help combat food security through sustainable produce. We work with many non-profits that are doing just that. Our farmers provide nutritious pesticide free leafy greens to food pantries and shelters to help make a positive impact in their communities. We can help with your non-profit venture!

Business to Consumer (B2C)

Selling produce direct to consumers can be a great way to make supplemental income through farmer’s markets or selling directly from your farm. The possibilities are endless when choosing B2C, and we can help narrow down your idea and select the most profitable choice.
