Die Rostlaube - the birth of our very first German copy-cat

In 2011, under the name “Rostlaube”, UrbanFarmers shipped the first “UF BOX” went to Berlin, Germany. Soon after delivering our first prototype to a prospective rooftop farm customer at Malzfabrik, we found ourselves caught in surprise as the UF BOX was used by copy-cat “Efficient-Farming Systems (ECF)” to launch their very own urban farming franchise in Germany….with our product they had a fantastic free-ride and benefited from PR that UF had created in the first place. Thanks guys!





Customers frequently ask us what the current link between UF and ECF is. - None! If you have any doubts as to who is the true originator of the UF BOX concept, please read here in DER SPIEGEL.
