Mucci Farms Embarks on a 30 Acre Greenhouse Expansion in Canada
KINGSVILLE, ON - Mucci Farms is moving on up with an additional 30 acres in its greenhouse portfolio.
The company will be breaking ground on new state-of-the-art greenhouses in Canada, and a portion of the expansion will include lit culture/grow lights to help offer year-round production of locally grown and vine-ripened products, according to a press release.
“By increasing the number of months of local production, Mucci Farms will increase the efficiency of energy and decrease food miles,” the company said.
Upon the completion of this expansion, Mucci Farms will own and operate 180 acres of greenhouses, while marketing for over 400 acres. This latest addition comes soon after the company’s greenhouse, warehouse, and corporate office expansion in 2013.
Mucci Farms has expanded more than just its facilities. Its latest additions to its line of greenhouse-grown products include Smuccies Sweet Strawberries, Naked Leaf Living Lettuce and Herbs, Hotshots Mixed Hot Peppers, as well as the recent introduction of Natural Organics.
The expansion is expected to be completed this coming fall.
