The 61-acre site located in the Louisa County Industrial Air Park will be home to an innovative hydroponic greenhouse and processing facility expected to produce several million pounds of leafy greens each year.
Better Future Farms secured funding through Generate Capital, a leading sustainable infrastructure investment and operating platform. Better Future Farms also has a sales agreement for its production with Taylor Farms, the nation’s largest salad and fresh-cut vegetable producer.
Virginia is a national leader in indoor agricultural production and this project represents new job opportunities for residents. The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with Louisa County and the Louisa County Industrial Development Authority to secure the project. Additionally, support for Better Future Farms’ job creation will be provided through the Virginia Talent Accelerator Program, a workforce initiative created by VEDP in collaboration with the Virginia Community College System and other higher education partners.
