    USA Manufactured Products from Bootstrap Farmer

    Bootstrap Farmer stands by our USA-made products' exclusive designs and sturdy construction. We are so sure that our heavy-duty trays will last that we guarantee it! Read more about how we warranty our products and how our innovations and transition to manufacturing in the United States have improved our already reliable equipment. 

    User-tested, Hands on Design of USA-Made Products

    Since moving our tray production to the US, we have had a more hands-on role in the trays' design, composition, and manufacturing process. We have found ways to improve our product, like increasing the tray's flexibility while preserving the heavy-duty standard. This extra flexibility reduced the risk of corner chipping on the trays, making them even more indestructible! We were even able to redesign the tray's appearance by adding a thumb notch and thicker tray walls giving them added strength and durability

    We've also been able to speed up product development, improve quality control and reduce our carbon footprint by lowering shipping miles.

    All USA Made 1020 trays, 1020 microgreen trays, 1020 Mesh Trays, 1010 Trays, air pruning trays, six-cell plug insert trays, and 2.5" seed starting pots have a 2-year warranty to be free from defects.  

    To ensure quality, we test our products at real working farms. If it doesn't break, it's ready for your farm. Then, the testing continues with you. Bootstrap Farmer relies on hardworking growers' expert feedback to continue to improve our products and offerings.

    Of Note: The sun degrades all plastic. This warranty does not apply to trays left bare in the sun for extended periods. This warranty applies to and is warranted for cracks and degradation due to an inadequacy in manufacturing. 

    Color fading under light is normal and not covered under warranty. Some colors will fade more quickly than others. While all plastics are sensitive to natural sunlight degradation, all of our trays are made with a UV-resistant additive to help reduce and slow this effect. 

    How to Order Replacement Trays?
