The company was established to hold assets and oversee operations of an urban farm to be located in Michigan. The farm provides fresh, local, specialty produce to restaurants using state of the art technology to support sustainable year-round growing. They grow specialty produce that is not commercially available from local vendors, oftentimes selling at premium rates. The farm has been able to begin operations to a small extent and is now seeking financing to establish the greenhouses needed to realize its full vision.
