Rockingham, Va.-based Shenandoah Growers now has three indoor growing facilities, with the newest one in Sherman, Texas.
Shipments from the new facility will begin this month.
“This location is ideal to reach our customers in the Southwest,” CEO Timothy Heydon said. “We also have a great and supportive community in Sherman.”
The new greenhouse will grow organic living herbs and organic microgreens. The Sherman location is more than 28,5000 square feet, and the company has room to expand.
Shenandoah plans to build facilities on the West Coast next, with completion of that project expected in 2018, according to a news release.
“Our model is to have regional and local hubs, so (we will be) building more facilities on West Coast and Northeast over next year,” Heydon said. “Beauty (of) our proprietary system is we can build and scale quickly.”
The investment in the latest facility was less than $3 million, Heydon said.
