Vertical farming at home with Herbert (Top Product 2018)


Meet Herbert. Your very own vertical farm for fresh chillies, mint, basil, chives, strawberries… You name it Herbert can grow it. We created Herbert for you! Because we wanted to make it possible for everyone to grow their own food. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a lot of space, time or even if you don’t have a green thumb. In Herbert you can grow up to 15 plants at the same time. You can harvest them whenever you need it. This way you can reduce your food waste too and the best thing is you know what’s in your food: no GMO, no pesticides, no herbicides because you’re growing everything at home. Plants in Herbert grow directly in water. Growing this way is called hydroponics and it makes planting less messy and consumes around 90% less water than growing plants in soil. With our in-house developed LED technology which mimics sunlight you can grow fresh vegetables, herbs and strawberries all year round. With a simple swipe in our app… you can change the light settings to suit your own needs. In Herbert you can produce around 80 to 90 heads of lettuce every year. Growing hydroponically yields 40% more harvest than growing with traditional farming methods. That’s a fresh head of lettuce every four to five days. For three years we’ve been installing and optimizing hydroponic systems into restaurants and offices. With your help we can bring professional gardening into everyone’s home. So please support us and share it on your network. Because there is nothing better than sharing a dinner with family and friends. A dinner that you not only cooked by yourself but that you harvested as well.

  1. Great thing. I would love to buy (or make) one, really. But still -1 for "no GMO" anti-scientific argument.

  2. No GMO argument makes me laugh… I would rather use excellent GMO varieties than the awful "natural" ones… Trust me, I'm a biologist…

  3. I would prefere, to build this on my own. Are you planing to sell the building instructions for private use? This would be great.

  4. this design has been around for years its not a new concept. Another thing do your homework on your plants a head of lettuce in 4-5 days is a joke, microgreen lettuce takes 7 days or longer. how this product made it to kickstarter beats me, wouldnt be surprised if there is a law suit waiting round the corner….
