Smart Farmers was founded in 2015 in Ghent, Belgium. One year later the company was awarded the Short Chain prize by the city of Ghent for the “Urban Smart Farm” concept. Plans were put to reality and one year along the entrepreneurs were farming fish, micro greens and gastronomical herbs in 2 remodeled shipping containers. Smart Farmers became expert at developing and building installations. Today, the company is your installation builder and consultant for agriculture.
Pascal De Bondt and Bart Kregersman believe in profitable innovation for food production and wish to support farmers at this innovation. Sensors and data systems allow for precision; high yields per square meter pay back smart investments. Working without pesticides or waste is also part of the future. Smart handling of resources is cost-effective and profitable for a sector with little margin.
