INTAG community systems help healthy rehabilitation. Rehabilitation facilities, their staff, and patients experience a wide array of benefits from INTAG’s controlled environment agriculture. From creating beautiful gardens to nutritious food, INTAG rehabilitation facility systems are configured to meet the programmatic needs of returning veterans, people with disabilities, the nursing care community, post-operative patients, addiction treatment centers, and other restorative and rehabilitation programs.

Lower Operating Costs [Revitalization]
Lower Operating Costs:
INTAG systems eliminate your transport and cold storage costs associated with food delivery and storage. Your produce is grown at or near your desired location, picked fresh, and prepared in a matter of minutes.  INTAG aquaponics systems have lower operating costs than traditional hydroponics and aquaponics systems primarily because we don’t need to source mineral...

INTAG systems eliminate your transport and cold storage costs associated with food delivery and storage. Your produce is grown at or near your desired location, picked fresh, and prepared in a matter of minutes.  INTAG aquaponics systems have lower operating costs than traditional hydroponics and aquaponics systems primarily because we don’t need to source mineral nutrients. The fish in our aquaponics systems provide optimal nutrients, eliminating the need and expense of buying harvested minerals from mines.  Producers who switch to INTAG systems see an approximate 65% decrease in production costs. For instance, on average, the cost of microgreens will decrease from $30/lb to $9/lb, and spring mix will decrease from $15/lb to $4/lb.   SHOW LESS
Higher Quality
Higher Quality:
INTAG systems are proven to grow food with superior taste compared to food grown in soil or hydroponic systems. Independent third-party taste marker tests conclude INTAG’s superior quality of produce. Freshly picked, moments before you use it, full flavor and nutrients, your produce is always at its peak.
Superior Nutrients
Superior Nutrients:
The holy grail of a nutritional diet is the sufficient intake of micronutrients. Much of American farmland is depleted of micronutrients due to decades of overuse. INTAG systems have verified third-party test results showing higher nutrient content levels than traditional hydroponics and in many cases, soil-based growing. Unlike traditional hydroponic systems where the nutrients have... READ MORE
The holy grail of a nutritional diet is the sufficient intake of micronutrients. Much of American farmland is depleted of micronutrients due to decades of overuse. INTAG systems have verified third-party test results showing higher nutrient content levels than traditional hydroponics and in many cases, soil-based growing. Unlike traditional hydroponic systems where the nutrients have to be manually added, the fish in INTAG systems produce a constant flow of natural micronutrients in our closed system. The fish can’t be persuaded to short change the system to increase profit margins. The fine-tuned but durable system works holistically to the benefit of the fish, the plants, and the produce.

TASTE/FLAVOR
TASTE/FLAVOR:
Food grown in a controlled environment is not weather-beaten, therefore it remains delicate, flavorful, and pure. INTAG systems grow tender, delicate greens that burst with flavor due to their high nutrient levels.

Produce from an INTAG system is always get the cream of the crop. Blemishes that can be caused by animals, pests, or severe weather are all eliminated with controlled environment agriculture. Produce from an INTAG system is always colorful, appealing, and fresh. And, an INTAG system may be placed in areas where patients and staff can enjoy the visual bounty growing at your facility. They may experience the benefits of nature while indoors. SHOW LESS
Transport / Logistics
Transport / Logistics:
In America, the average piece of produce travels 1500 miles before being consumed. Nearly 75% of the price you pay for food accounts for transportation, fossil fuels, and packaging. With an INTAG system, those costs are eliminated. Food is grown on site or nearby, picked by your staff, and served fresh. No transportation. No logistics.... READ MORE

Workforce Development [Rehabilitation]
Workforce Development:
Many rehabilitation and wellness facilities enjoy a unique benefit of INTAG systems: staff and patient enrichment, and workforce development. Cultivating agriculture, your staff dives deeper into food education and biosecurity skills.

Many rehabilitation and wellness facilities enjoy a unique benefit of INTAG systems: staff and patient enrichment, and workforce development. Cultivating agriculture, your staff dives deeper into food education and biosecurity skills. By growing or picking the food themselves, they are learning the stories which will then lead to interesting dialogue at the dining table - more passion and authenticity - about your food. INTAG systems also help innovative chefs create imaginative, colorful menus because they control the supply chain. SHOW LESS
Agri-therapy [Rehabilitation]
Agri-therapy:
The benefits of agri-therapy include increased focus, confidence, community-building, nutrition and environmental awareness, and a sense of achievement. Caring for fish and plants reduces stress and anxiety, and generates a sense of pride and well being. Participants gain life skills and develop a connection with nature and others, which is especially important for patients coping... READ MORE
The benefits of agri-therapy include increased focus, confidence, community-building, nutrition and environmental awareness, and a sense of achievement. Caring for fish and plants reduces stress and anxiety, and generates a sense of pride and well being. Participants gain life skills and develop a connection with nature and others, which is especially important for patients coping with rehabilitation, addiction, and mental or physical disabilities. INTAG systems are a proven, effective method of agri-therapy for patients with autism and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). INTAG systems can be configured to incorporate wheelchair and other accessibility requirements. Patients and staff become intimately connected to their food, its nutritional importance, and community/social value. SHOW LESS
Risk Mitigation
Risk Mitigation:
INTAG systems reduce the probability of foodborne illnesses by: removing warm-blooded animals from the production chain, thereby nearly eliminating the risk of e-coli and other organisms; reducing the number of hands that touch your produce; and bringing stability to the supply chain through controlled environments. In short, we control access to your food and climate-proof... READ MORE

Food Safety
Food Safety:
INTAG systems use a controlled growing environment, with no manure, no synthetic pesticides, and very limited interaction with human hands. We can configure our systems to exceed the most rigorous food safety requirements.
