(Archive) Phood Farm - Food growth innovation with Aquaponic city farming in Eindhoven

How to reinvent, redesign and rethink the way we grow food?

This project was part of DDW 2021
Phood Farm

Phood Farm produces, sells and delivers healthy, fresh products in a sustainable and eco-friendly way. This is done by means of Aquaponic farming and other innovative techniques, for a local market and thereby offering an educational workplace for people with a distance to the labor market.

Healthy food, sustainably cultivated in the city

Phood farm is an aquaponic care farm on the campina site in Eindhoven. Here we grow vegetables, herbs, sprouts and mushrooms in a sustainable, ecological way. Our mission is to keep the city healthy, which starts with what you sow, how you grow it and what you eat.

We deliver our products hyper-locally to companies such as restaurants, offices, health stores or farm shops. But also to private consumers who would like to buy healthy, local and organic vegetables directly from the 'farmer'.

We produce hyper locally, using new technologies and an ecological system.

Our plants grow in a different way than you may be used to – namely on Aquaponic systems.

In short, Aquaponic farming is growing on water, where the food comes from fish manure and is converted into usable plant food. The fish receive clean water from the plants again and so the circle is complete in a self-regulating system. A very sustainable way of growing in which up to 90% less water is used.

Sustainability is very important to us, today that our delivery service is electric. We do our utmost to get healthy, organic products to your company or kitchen as quickly and healthily as possible.

Phood care – working together, learning, growing!

The second aspect, and a great passion of ours, is growing people. We believe that everyone deserves a chance for happiness, health and the realization of their dreams. And we contribute to that.

We do this by offering a place for people with a distance to the labor market to work, learn and grow with us. We call it 'soul gardening'.
