Agriculture and Rural Affairs Steering Committee Mobile Workshop: Vertical Harvest Tour

May. 25, 2016 , 2:45 pm – 5:00 pm
2016 WIR Conference

The Steering Committee will be visiting Vertical Harvest’s hydroponic greenhouse, a public/private partnership with the town of Jackson that will fill an ever increasing market demand for locally grown, fresh produce. The three story, 13,500 sq. ft. hydroponic greenhouse will utilize a 1/10 of an acre to grow an annual amount of produce equivalent to 5 acres of traditional agriculture. With 95 percent of its product already under pre-purchase agreements, Vertical Harvest will grow and sell vegetables year-round to the Jackson area via restaurants, local grocery stores and directly to consumers through on-site sales.
