Because Grow Farms is in its first year of operation, it is only packing seasonal varieties, but Knott said he hopes to expand the deal as demand increases.

“The goal is to have customers requesting Grow Farms. We’ll just have to look at our avenues once we get to that point. It’s got a lot of potential,” Knott said.

The local deals, for the most part, run from June through October, about a month earlier than the Northeastern states, Knott said.
