Locust Grove Farm, with its location near the Atlanta metro area, “will serve a population of 20 million people within a 200-mile radius,” according to a news release, while Arlington Farm, located near Dallas, will serve a population of 16 million within a 200-mile radius. 

Both farms are expected to open in 2023, the release said.

Both farms will feature a few new amenities, too, including:
