Our Container Services in Basingstoke

Our container services in Basingstoke are designed to meet the diverse needs of the agricultural community, offering everything from controlled environment agriculture (CEA) units to secure storage facilities and mobile offices. These container solutions are revolutionising farming in Basingstoke and beyond, providing farmers with the tools they need to thrive in today's competitive market.

Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA)

Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) is one of the most exciting applications of container technology in farming. By converting shipping containers into self-contained grow units, Acorn Containers enables the production of crops all year round, regardless of external weather conditions. These 20ft Refrigerated Containers are equipped with state-of-the-art hydroponic systems, LED lighting, and climate control technologies, creating the perfect environment for a wide variety of crops. This innovative approach not only maximises yield but also conserves water and minimises the use of pesticides, aligning perfectly with the principles of sustainable farming.

Secure Storage Solutions

For farmers and growers in Basingstoke, secure storage is a critical concern. Acorn Containers offers robust 20ft Containers and 40ft Containers customised with shelving, ventilation, and temperature control to meet the specific needs of the agricultural sector. These units provide a safe, weather-resistant environment for equipment, seeds, fertilisers, and harvested produce, ensuring that valuable resources are kept in optimal conditions.

Mobile Offices

Managing a farm requires more than just space for crops; it also requires functional workspaces for administration, planning, and meetings. Acorn Containers addresses this need with mobile offices that can be situated directly on the farm. These offices, available for those looking to hire 40ft containers, can be customised with desks, internet connectivity, and climate control, offering a convenient and efficient solution for farm managers and staff.

The benefits of integrating container solutions into farming practices are manifold. From enhancing production efficiency to promoting sustainability, the advantages are clear. Container farming, for instance, reduces water usage by up to 90% compared to traditional methods and minimises the carbon footprint by eliminating the need for transport from distant fields. Moreover, the versatility and scalability offered by container solutions allow farmers to expand their operations quickly and efficiently, responding to market demands with agility.
