In Memoriam

David Michael Scranton

CO-FOUNDER
1958 - 2017

Over a decade ago, Ed McCammon and David Scranton founded AgriFacture to solve the Water, Energy, and Agriculture crises facing our planet. They began research and testing in David’s basement, and the discoveries they made would go on to become the foundation of what AgriFacture is today. After David’s passing in 2017, his wife Christine stepped in as President to continue AgriFacture’s mission, and his daughter Catherine has been an Operations intern for AgriFacture for several summers. 

David will always be a part of our AgriFacture family. 

Join the movement.

The new age of agricultural production and processing is here. 

At AgriFacture, we no longer want to “ADAPT” technology to agriculture – we want to “REPLACE” 10 thousand years of agriculture practices with designs and methodologies that can provide commodity level volumes to the market at costs that are below traditional soil based practices. 

Don’t get left behind – follow us on social media to stay up to date on all of the groundbreaking things happening at Agrifacture, and to join the conversation.
