Here’s the deal.
We’re looking at the future. Right now, it looks like unpredictable weather patterns, strained resources, failed crops, and a continuously growing population which means fewer acres to farm and more mouths to feed. We created Streamline Farms to address these issues head-on. Our greenhouse uses much less water than a traditional farm, and we designed it specifically for our extreme weather, dark winters, and most importantly, food safety. We’ve eliminated all food safety concerns by having a completely sanitized environment with traceability and minimal human contact, because we felt that the farmer should take the precaution, so that you don’t have to. Lastly, automation optimizes atmospheric conditions to the plants specific liking which allows for faster growth - resulting in more food while using less land.
Our produce is always in season.
Meet Your Farmers
Bradley Schuler | Lead Farmer & Co-Founder
Brad graduated in 2015 from Montana State University with a B.S. in Sustainable Foods and Bioenergy Systems. Over the past six years he has worked on several farms, including 3 years on an organic vegetable farm in Gallatin Valley. Brad spent countless hours sitting in a tractor, pulling weeds, and battling Montana’s harsh weather conditions. He saw how these variables made farming challenging and unpredictable, and felt it could be accomplished more efficiently. Brad’s passion and ambition for the technological advancement of sustainable farming helped bring Streamline Farms to fruition and we couldn’t be more excited to have him on our team.
Bennett Cawthon | CEO & Co-founder
Bennett’s background and experience really rounds us out. He graduated from Montana State University in 2017 with a B.S. in Business, Finance. During college, he worked for local wealth management firms but felt a drive to do more for his community. A passionate cook, Bennett noticed the lack of quality produce during the fall and winter months. He began researching and brain-storming with Brad, and felt he could put his business acumen and Brad’s farming expertise together to provide a solution for the community.
Where We Grow
Streamline Farms’ hydroponic greenhouse is designed for energy optimization, cleanliness, and uniform crop production. Our closed-loop system allows us to use 90% less water than field grown produce. We offer high quality lettuces and herbs 365 days a year that are grown sustainably, without pesticides or GMOs.
Something amazing happens when a plant gets exactly what it wants. From the nutrients and water, to the light, temperature, and humidity, our plants are more productive than most. Pairing that with a delivery time of days and not weeks ensures happy customers.
Clean & Efficient
Efficiency and Technology
Our passion for efficiency is a big part of why we chose Three Forks, Montana. Our location features a pocket of warmer temperatures, excellent sun exposure, and efficient, reliable transportation routes. The 50 miles radius from our farm is one of the most populous locations in Montana, allowing us to serve more customers.
Our expertise in Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) makes us the best choice for herbs and lettuces. By carefully monitoring the climate with advanced technology, we eliminate the harsh temperature swings Montana is accustomed to; turning bitter, tough leaves, tender and delicious. We control every aspect of the growing environment so we can provide the cleanest, freshest produce, delicious to the last leaf.
Our facility is held to the highest standards particularly when it comes to food safety. We take all necessary precautions when handling your food. We implement industry leading bug exclusion methods and use sterile gloves and hair nets during all harvesting and processing. We make sure our plants are exposed to nothing more than clean Montana air, reverse osmosis (RO) water, and naturally derived nutrients and minerals. That’s it.
