about us

We at SuperGrow™ are passionate about natural farming.  We value organic soil to grow produce vibrant in flavor and rich in nutrients.  To combat today’s chemical and hydroponic compromises, we’ve designed the SuperGrow Container™, a repurposed shipping container outfitted with patented technologies to provide the perfect grow environment all day, every day … anywhere.    We’re not hydroponic – we’re terraponic.

This means that our produce is grown in soil and we use organic methods so that the produce qualifies for organic certification.  Chemical-laden field farms cannot qualify nor can hydroponic farms qualify for organic certification.         (see Is Hydroponic Organic?)  Furthermore, our soil is packed with micronutrients no longer found in field farms while the SuperGrow Container minimizes use of water and energy.   With this controlled and optimized environment, we’re able to produce farming yields that far surpass that of our competitors.

Progressive field farmers are being joined by a new generation of urban farmers all intent on bringing back the nutritious produce generations before us enjoyed at prices and availability never before imagined.

Come join us and discover the new solution for farming — nature’s plan restored efficiently, effectively, and organically.

SuperGrow – organic any season, anywhere.

Mission & Values

Mission
To impact communities by enabling locally grown, organic certified produce,
IN SOIL, year round with predictable and profitable yields.

Our society no longer eats healthfully. With the introduction of GMOs, hydroponics, and stripped farms, the nutritional value of our nation’s “healthy food”  is in serious decline. Add to that the harvesting of produce before maturity and using gases to make such appear ripe, as well as the embedded costs in transportation, refrigeration, and losses of produce at each distribution step along the way, and we face a serious web of interrelated problems. Our ambition is to reset the food source and supply chain so as to restore it to ways that equal the nutrition of yesteryear while surpassing the production. With the advent of technology, we have the ability to now deliver produce in greater quantity, in less time, with less resources used, all packed with the nutritional benefits that nature intended.

We desire for you and your family to eat healthfully again. We desire quality produce in your stores and on your plates — produce that is high in nutrients and vibrant in flavor. We desire farming that supports the growing demand for organic, and makes it available to anyone. We do not alter nature’s methods — we celebrate and augment what nature has given us.

Our Values

We purpose to be a company of integrity pursuing excellence in all that we do. We speak honestly, with a value towards communication. We provide quality jobs and healthy workplaces, aiming to generate fair profits for all involved. We value community and give back in any way we can.
