The Farm

Remembering our roots is one of the most important issues many of us face today; agricultural activities have been left on the shelf, desperate for innovation. Our company “The Farm” is here to make this a past by providing individuals with incentives and an innovative way to view farming as an easy, domestic activity. This company is going to rent chicken coups to families while incorporating software and development to make sure everybody has a chance to grow their own food and provide for their family.
