Microgreens grow and display rack, Kitchenfarm
Grow box for leafygreens and microgreens
The Kitchenfarm is a grow box for leafygreens and microgreens. You can easily grow salads, herbs, and garnishes at any desired location. Throughout the year! Ideal for restaurants, schools, and corporate canteens that value fresh and locally sourced food.
Easy to maintain and use
The Kitchenfarm consists of 2 floors that are illuminated with energy-efficient LED grow lights. The Kitchenfarm can optionally be expanded with a third floor. The cultivation itself is done in special ebb & flow trays. Here the plants grow, illuminated by powerful LEDs in pots with soil or on grow mats. The substructure of the Kitchenfarm consists of a closed space where the water tank and the pump are located. The ebb & flow trays are periodically filled with a layer of water, after which they are emptied again. Ebb and flow!
Because the ebb and flow trays are equipped with drainage gutters, there will not remain any water behind after the watering shifts. This way the plants never have “wet feet”. Something that many plants have a hard time with and eventually even might die from.
The Kitchenfarm is controlled by the supplied Smartbox. This allows you to set the number of watering moments and exposure times via a free downloadable app. In addition to sowing and harvesting, you only need to keep the water tank at the bottom of the cabinet filled. This can be done with normal tap water.
Microgreens are germinated vegetable seeds. They have just passed the germination phase and already have a few leaves in the typical color of the vegetable in question. Microgreens are decorative, super healthy, and a true taste explosion. Delicious in salads, on sandwiches, and as a garnish. Growing these sprouts or microgreens is very easy and works best on grow mats that are placed in special grow containers. After the mats have been placed in the grow containers, they can be sprinkled with a layer of seeds. Now you only have to place the grow containers in the Kitchenfarm and the rest will take care of itself. The microgreens can be harvested and consumed after just a few days.
Leafy greens are a collective name for leafy vegetables, salads, and herbs. Most can be easily grown in pots with soil. You can choose to grow your leafy greens from seed or put a fully grown plant from the store in the cabinet. The Kitchenfarm offers the perfect living environment for your plants and in this way you can start harvesting immediately. We can also supply mature plants if required. In a special nursery, we grow plants with which we have good growing experience. For the current range, you can send us an email.
Of course it will take a little longer to grow your own salads, herbs, and edible flowers from seed, but seeds are available in thousands of varieties all year round. Also, those vegetables and herbs that cannot be found in any store. In our webshop, we sell “propagators” and plugs for growing seeds. As soon as the plants are big enough they can be repotted and placed in the Kitchenfarm. After about 2 to 3 weeks you can harvest daily from the leafy greens.
Most leafy greens will simply grow back after harvest. Often for several weeks. So once up and running you can harvest and eat from that one plant for weeks.
