Click here to find out what The Urban Farm is and what it can do!

Exclusive Patent-Pending design. The Urban Farm automatically fills and drains nutrient from the reservoir to the planters 6-8 times/day, keeping your plants' rootzone aerated, flushed, and full of the nutrition vegetable plants need for heavy yield, sweet flavor, and large size.

As with all Urban Series GroSystems, choose either economy black pots or elegant rotationally-molded cyclinder planters to utilize patent-pending recirculating hydroponic technology for eye-popping yields. All Urban Farm 5's come with 34 gal proprietary food-grade reservoirs.

Tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, melons, and eggplant can grow so large with such a heavy yield in The Urban Farm that vertical support is recommended. See How to grow tomatoes.

The Economics:
The best heirloom tomatoes cost $4-$6lb. Red, yellow, and orange bell peppers cost $2 each. Let's say you have the Urban Farm 5: three planters with tomatoes, one with red and orange bell peppers, and the fifth with cucumbers. Realistically, you will harvest at least 60lbs of tomatoes. You would either save $240-$360 from the supermarket or you would make that much selling them at the farmers market. The bushels full of peppers and cucumbers add tremendously to your savings. You can make any combination you like.....the return on investment is the same, and you get to continue using the system year after year.

Right: French heirlooms "Coustralee"ready for the plate. Now this is what a 2 pound beefsteak is really all about.

The Urban Farm=better nutrition.
The Urban Farm provides the perfect root zone conditions, and our Urban Farm Fertilizers Liquid Nutrient provides plant nutrition in ideal ratios. Your plants grow effortlessly with no stress, no drought, maximum oxygen, firing on all cyclinders. Less stress and perfect health equals better metabolism equals maximum nutrition.

Right: acorn squash in one planter while still small. It ended up covering 200 sq ft and produced 20 squash.→
Could you imagine if this started out at waist-level? A better idea is to use bush varieties and go vertical!!

Hydroponics at ground level.

What does this mean? The Patent-pending technology of The Urban Farm doesn't rely on gravity to return solution to the nutrient reservoir. Almost all current hydroponic systems on the market today do. This means your plants start out at waist-level.....totally impractical for outdoor, high-performance vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, and squash. The Urban Farm hydroponics system allows plants to grow from ground level for better vertical training.

Dedicated to quality: food-grade polyethylene reservoirs and planters,
UV-8 ultraviolet protection* (8 years in the Florida sun), stainless steel fasteners, point-to-point handwired electronics, German multi-program timers.

*UV-8 rating applies to both grey and granite reservoirs and granite planters only.

**NOTE: Planters must be within 1/2" of level with each other from end-to-end. If placed on soil, the soil can be mounded up or excavated down under each individual planter to accomplish this.
