Assembly Instructions

We hate to yell it, but our Family Farms are super easy to put together!

Our Family Farm is pretty big (woohoo) so it comes in two boxes. If you’ve assembled anything flat packed before then this should be easy as! There are just 4 panels, 4 wheels and 2 frames – all of which can be put together using an allen key which is included with the Family Farm! You’ll also get instructions in the box, and in your email after you make a purchase – just to make sure we’ve got you covered! Of course, if you ever need any help, you can give our friendly Farm Experts a ring!

Cool fact: if you are in Sydney we can assist with the assembly of your family farm! Not in Sydney? No problems, we can offer a free consultation over the phone so you can get growing in no time!

Maintenance

We’ll be honest, not a lot of effort is required for the Family Farm. Since our Farm is hydroponic, it is uses 90% less water (yay environment) than soil grown plants – meaning you don’t have to spend as much time watering your plants!

The Family farm cuts down watering from a daily chore to something you’d only need to do fortnightly at the worst!

Once your plants have thrived and grown to maturity – they will most likely reach the end of their lives. This is normal and you shouldn’t feel bad, “annuals” are meant to provide just one crop! To replant and get going again all you need to do is empty the water from the basin, pull out the old rockwool cubes, and replace them with new ones – then you can just plant some new seeds and you’re good to go!

FAQs

Can I grow any type of seed?

Yep, our smart gardens don't do anything tricky that would stop you from growing your own seeds - you can pickup seeds from your garden, nursery, or even from that avocado you ate for lunch, and use it in our smart gardens to grow whatever you want! The only constraint is the height of the product!

How does the family farm work?

Plants grown in The Family Farm float directly in the water that they grow in, this results in high water efficiency - reducing the amount of maintenance that the system needs! When its time to refill water, the lights at the bottom of your Family Farm will flash - but don't worry, you'll only need to refill on average once every 2-3 weeks depending on the size of your plants and the temperature and humidity of the room your plants are in! Our Hydroponic nutrients and full spectrum LED grow lights provide your plants with the perfect nutrient balance and light exposure that they need to grow. This means you will experience higher yields and faster growth as your plants do not need to expend energy growing their root system in search of nutrients. You can grow food indoors, reducing the distance food travels to get to you - resulting in a fresher meal on your table, fewer emissions from food miles, and fewer plants subjugated to life in the back of a fridge!

What does it grow in?

Water! The plants are held together in rock wool - which is the product of a rock that has been heated and spun like fairy floss. Rock wool provides uniform oxygenation for a plants roots, as well as a stable medium for the plant to be secured by. Once the roots grow out of the rock wool, they simply float in the water and grow! As a result, you get soil-free growth that makes this product perfect for homes, cafes, restaurants and offices! This Family Farm has 72 of these Rockwool growing pods! So, you can grow a variety of your favorite herbs and veggies.

How long until I have to plant seeds again?

Plant your seeds again once your plants have been completely harvested and the growth cycle is over. Each plant has it's own growth cycle.

  • For Leafy Vegetables 25-40 days
  • For Flowers 2-4 months
  • Fruit Vegetables 2-3 months

How do I refill the family farm?

Its best to let the water level in your basin drop close to the bottom (with perhaps 1cm of water left in the basin) before topping up the water. This is so that your plant roots are forced to extend and grow as much as possible before you soak them again. Refill your family farm by mixing two scoops of hydroponic nutrients per top up. We recommend using a funnel or a narrow nozzle jug to top up water.

How do I harvest my food?

When most plants first sprout, they generally have a set of leaves that look nothing like their fully grown leaves. These are called "Seed leaves" and are just there to power the plant until it is large enough to grow "True leaves" (which look much more like the plant you are expecting to see). The general rule of thumb is that you should wait until your plant has 3 sets of "true leaves" before you cut anything. Once you have these 3 sets of true leaves, you can trim your plant down by cutting off the top section of the plant's main stem with sharp scissors at a 45-degree angle. Try to give the plant 5-10 cm of space between the light and the top set of leaves. Some plants such as basil can be harvested repeatedly, and grow faster with a healthy level of harvesting - whereas other plants such as lettuce are single harvest and are best harvested all in one go.

What happens if something goes wrong?

We don’t expect you’ll have any issues with your Family Farm. However, if you do, we’ll replace anything that misfires in the first year.
