Oct 9, 2019Head grower hired at Revolution Farms
Revolution Farms, a large indoor hydroponic greens farm in Caledonia, Michigan has hired Tammam (Tam) Serage as head grower.
Serage came to Revolution Farms from Shenandoah Growers in Harrisonburg, Va., where he most recently served as the farm’s corporate grower, according to a press release from Revolution Farms. Tam has more than 25 years of practical experience production of organic herbs, microgreens and ornamentals.
“His extensive hydroponics expertise will help us continue to make our product better and more nutritious, ensuring it’s the best salad option for Michigan and Midwest consumers,” Revolution Farms CEO John Green said in the release.
Serage previously worked as head grower at farms in Maryland and Delaware, as well as serving in multiple growing roles at farms in Alabama and Saudi Arabia, according to the press release. He holds Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Horticulture from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, as well as an Associate of Science from Virginia Western Community College.
Revolution Farms’ 85,000 -square-foot indoor farm, located on 76th St in Caledonia, has the capacity to produce more than 500,000 pounds of fresh lettuce and salad greens for Michigan and the Midwest region every year, according to the press release. Its leafy greens go from farm to store in as few days, much fewer days than it takes for lettuce grown and shipped from California, Arizona and Mexico to make it to Michigan store shelves.
