Farming Is Changing


Want to make a million dollars from farming? Start with two million.

There is a little truth in every joke and this one is no exception.

Times are changing for growers in the United States. Growers moving indoors are discovering they can grow more food with less water. Any crop can be grown indoors. The more common crops grown indoors are greens, microgreens and herbs, vine crops, cannabis, some fruits, and flowers or nursery crops.

Indoor greens farmers are seeing 10x increases in pricing and indoor tomato growers are seeing 2.5x increases in pricing.

If you are considering moving any or all of your growing indoors you will want to watch this 2 minute video, and let us know if you need any help making the transition.
