About


We are focused on research in to the application of Precision Farming Rovers to climate-friendly regenerative agriculture. Our research includes the development of Acorn, a completely open source farming robot. We are building a community of interested users at https://community.twistedfields.com/ who wish to contribute to development. To help grow this community we produce educational materials about our research in addition to the release of our source code and design files.
