Green Life Farms has commenced construction on its second hydroponic greenhouse in Florida on a 24-acre parcel of land in Lake City.
The company is constructing a 400,000 sq. ft. greenhouse in Lake City. The facility is expected to begin commercial operations in early 2022.
Green Life Farms anticipates construction of the new Lake City facility to create 80 jobs. Once commercial operations begin, the organization expects to hire 20 to 28 full-time employees and grow 3 million pounds of leafy greens annually in its state-of-the-art facility, using the latest agricultural innovations to keep its greens fresh, and its carbon footprint small.
