In the bustling agricultural landscape of Blackpool, a revolution is underway, transforming the way farming is conducted. At the heart of this transformation is Acorn Containers, a company that's redefining the essence of modern farming through innovative container solutions. These aren't just any containers; they're the building blocks of a sustainable, efficient, and highly productive farming future.


Our Container Services in Blackpool

Our container services in Blackpool are at the forefront of this revolution, offering customised solutions that cater to the diverse needs of the agricultural and horticultural sectors. From controlled environment agriculture (CEA) to secure storage and mobile offices, Acorn Containers is paving the way for a new era in farming.

Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA)

Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) is a game-changer in the farming industry, and Acorn Containers is leading the charge. By transforming shipping containers into self-contained grow units, farmers in Blackpool can now produce crops year-round, irrespective of the external weather conditions. These 20ft Refrigerated Containers are equipped with state-of-the-art hydroponic systems, LED lighting, and climate control technologies, ensuring optimal growing conditions for a variety of crops. This method is not only efficient but also aligns with sustainable farming practices by conserving water and minimising pesticide use.

Secure Storage

Secure storage is another critical aspect of farming that cannot be overlooked. Acorn Containers offers 40ft Containers customised with shelving, ventilation, and temperature control to meet the specific needs of Blackpool's farmers and growers. 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

For the administrative side of farming operations, Acorn Containers provides 20ft Containers for hire that can be converted into mobile offices. These offices are customisable with desks, internet connectivity, and climate control, offering a convenient and efficient workspace for farm managers and staff directly on the farm.

The benefits of integrating container solutions into agricultural and horticultural practices are manifold. Sustainability and eco-friendliness are at the core of container farming, with water usage reduced by up to 90% compared to traditional methods. The ability to repurpose shipping containers also presents an eco-friendly alternative to new construction, reducing waste and promoting sustainability.

Efficiency and productivity are significantly enhanced through controlled environment agriculture, with crops growing faster under optimal conditions. This ensures a consistent supply to meet market demand, increasing productivity and profitability for farmers in Blackpool.

Versatility and scalability are other key advantages of container solutions. The modular nature of containers allows for easy expansion of operations, enabling farmers to experiment with different crops and techniques without significant investment. This flexibility is crucial for adapting to business growth and changing market demands.

Enhanced biosecurity is another benefit, with container farms isolating crops from external pests and diseases. This reduces the risk of contamination and loss, ensuring healthier, more robust crop production.
