'Farm from a Box' is an all-in-one kit that helps poor farmers get started. In many regions, farmers lack the equipment necessary to make the most out of their land. This kit is specially designed to help refugees and poor farmers grow crops on small plots of land.

Farm from a Box is a comprehensive kit that provides everything needed to run a small-scale farm off the grid. The kit comes with solar panels that can be used to generate energy, water filtration equipment for irrigation and tools for harvesting crops. When used together, the equipment helps farmers grow crops in places that lack modern agricultural infrastructure.

The kit is primarily intended for poor farmers with farms that are smaller than one hectare in size, as well as refugees who may need a temporary food source. As a result, the company plans to test out the kits in Ethiopia's Rift Valley sometime in the coming year.
