The Biofarm™, an integration of innovative technologies to conserve water and provide plant fertility and fish feed at a fraction of the cost of manufactured organic nutrients. Our first major installation is currently under way in a rural town south of Eugene, Oregon. It will contain the following features:
Biogarden® and greenhouse - Once the existing 3000 SF greenhouse has been renovated and upgraded with Bioponica grow tables and tanks taking upwards of 1050 SF of grow area and 3200 gallons in nutrient and aquatic storage tanks under the beds
NPK Brewery™ – A facility for extracting liquid nutrients, utilizing Bioponica’s innovative method called ‘nutri-cycling’ for digesting, oxygenating and bio-filtering plant and fish food derived entirely from wet and dry, abundantly available biomass.
Priomordial Soup™ - Many hours of trial, error and testing went into determining a wide variety of plant and organic matter that can be used to make liquid fertilizer through nutri-cycling. Bioponica blends and processes dried biomasses efficiently to provide targeted levels of various macro and trace minerals. These minerals are used to feed liquid nutrients to fish, plant and rhizosphere microbes.
BioFarmacy™ - A processing facility designed to add value to the farm. In our Oregon project, the BioFarmacy™ will be a cleaning, blending, juicing, freezing and packaging facility with option for nutritious - wheat grass and herb - popsicle making.
Farm produce stand – A facility for selling and displaying products made onsite, ranging from bulk produce, seedlings, flowers, and herbs to smoothies, salads or juices. With proper permitting, our client in Oregon will be able to sell worm castings, casting teas, liquid fertilizer and organically raised fish.
Shipping container tiny home – 800 SF 2bed/2bath home made from re-purposed shipping containers. The modern structure, architected by an expert in container homes will be fabricated in an Oregon warehouse and delivered to the site, ready for occupancy.
With commercial scale extraction and freezing equipment, a Biofarm owner can increase farm profits by adding value to the final product through by making beverages and frozen juice bars.
Wheat grass is already a popular, fast growing plant and is ideal for growing and extracting into a juice. The Biofarmacy popsicle making facility it is possible increase the shelf life of the nutritious grasses by processing and packaging on site and thereby, greatly increase the farm operation profits.
Everyone loves a sustainable business producing healthy foods for the community. Grower-producers will find nutritious, frozen juice bar consumers at local gatherings, in school cafeterias, and just about any grocery or health food shop.
Custom features and options:
The NPK Brewery is an organic liquid fertilizer making plant in a shipping container. It is designed and fabricated by Bioponica to growers seeking to produce a large volume of liquid plant fertilizer with NPK values that can be controlled for farming needs.
With organic liquid fertilizers, growers can save the costs of composting or purchasing organic soils and the labor of soil management and application.
The finished 'brew' can be high in organics (depending on blend and processing time). This gives growers the option of practicing no-till farming as the organics dissolved in the finished product replace the need to manually add compost and humus. Organic plant and biomass derived nutrients feed the microbes enhancing the condition of the soil and the growth of the plant.
NPK Brewery - Custom design options:
Sample Model: NPK Brewery™ 4-240G is a commercial sized production facility, fabricated in the US and available to customers in the US and worldwide. The shipping container unit fertilizer making unit is configured for optimal production of liquid fertilizer utilizing an array of 300 gallon Nutricycler units integrated for optimized function. Features include temperature control, air filtration, packaging, storage and security, and other features required for permitting as needed.

Typical Biofarmacy Construction Utilizing 40 ft High Cube IBC
This basic Biofarmacy design consists of a high quality, used 40 ft High Cube IBC metal shipping container that has is modified into three work spaces. Prior to wall construction a seamless vapor barrier is applied to all walls and ceiling to minimize air leakage and condensation. All partition walls and ceilings are constructed with 2 x 4 studs securely fastened to the container floor and ceiling base plates that are insulated to minimize thermal bridging from the typically hot or cold container metal walls. The walls are typically insulated to R-13 and the ceiling section to R-30 and if required the floor can be insulated to R- 13 or higher. All stud walls and ceilings are sheeted with FRP covered plywood to allow regular cleaning and compliance with local and industry health and hygiene codes. All seams are sealed to prevent water migration during cleaning. The existing wood floor has been cleaned and covered with seamless high impact resistant vinyl flooring. Application of a 1/8” thick steel sheets welded seamlessly cover the existing wood floors to minimize any liquid or vapor migration from the interior or exterior environment. The metal is covered with seamless vinyl or a liquid applied non-skid and hygienic floor system.
The electrical and plumbing systems are designed to match the customer’s equipment selection and these are typically installed at our fabrication facility and prior to installation of insulation and final wall covering. Exterior liquid collection tanks with transfer pumps can be added for recovery or off-site disposal of the facility processing liquids.
