Revolution Farms visit

Vegetable Growers News visited Revolution Farms in Caledonia, Michigan in May 2019. Revolution Farms harvested its first greens in October 2018. The operation consists of about one acre of indoor space for growing greens and a cold packing facility. The operation employs about 20 people and produces about 350,000-450,000 pounds of produce per year.
