FarmBot Directory

If you are interested in hacking your FarmBot, want to build one from the ground up, or want to start contributing designs, this is the place to start. This category page lists all of the different documented versions of complete FarmBots. Note, our use of complete refers to the fact that these projects are not just a subsystem, but an entire FarmBot system; it does not necessarily mean they are fully functioning systems or finished with development.
