Revol Greens, Minnesota’s greenhouse lettuce farm, announced today the completion of its greenhouse expansion, quadrupling its year round growing capacity.
There’s no disputing the growth and opportunity of the greenhouse industry, but it has two distinct sides of the same coin: international and hyper-local.
Cost has always been a factor for any company looking to expand into protected growing. There’s both good and bad news on this front.
Although the basic tenets of greenhouse growing haven’t changed all that much since the Victorian era—protecting crops indoors with controlled heat and light and a minimum of water and soil—technology and experimentation have certainly lent a hand.
Like chefs and restaurant patrons, most shoppers are no longer satisfied with only two or three varieties of their favorite fruits and vegetables.
Greenhouse growing has expanded beyond providing year-round access to seasonal vegetables like cucumbers, tomatoes, and bell peppers. The lineup has since evolved to include lettuce, microgreens, herbs, berries, and more.
As the desire for year-round availability climbs, suppliers and others look to greenhouses to augment demand. Given the explosive growth of greenhouses in Canada, Mexico, and the United States over the last decade, most would consider this surge a recent phenomenon.
Matt Roy will focus on developing customer relationships and creating new business specific to the company’s expanding line of greenhouse-grown fresh produce items.
The new 280,000 sq. ft. farm in Selinsgrove, Pa. will deliver over 2 million pounds of fresh, local produce year-round in Pennsylvania and the tri-state area.
