what our client says

Things are going well here and we continue to make strides. We hope to have the new systems all built and started by the end of February. We will continue to operate the MicroFarm until the commercial farm can take over. We also want to start working on our application for our next piece of land. We plan on building another greenhouse big enough to house 2 large commercial systems. We are looking forward to growing with you over the next 10 years!
