In California, Plenty announced their next indoor organic farm will be in the Seattle area as they continue to scale worldwide. Expected to open in the first half of 2018 in Kent, WA, the produce grown there will be available to local Seattle and Vancouver BC-area consumers beginning in mid-2018.
“Seattle’s emphasis on delicious, healthy food and energy and water efficiency makes the area a natural fit for our next Plenty farm,” said Matt Barnard, CEO and co-founder of Plenty. “At nearly 100,000 square feet, Seattle will be home to our first full scale farm and help set the standard by which our global farm network makes locally-grown, backyard-quality produce accessible to everyone. We’re excited about what’s next and look forward to building the Seattle team.”
Plenty’s first field-scale farm is in South San Francisco and will start delivering produce to local Bay Area customers by the end of 2017.
