Plenty vertical farm

Plenty to open vertical farm in LA

Vertical farming company  Plenty recently announced it will build a new operation to serve southern California.

The farm, about the size of a soccer field, is planned to begin development in Compton later this year and bringing produce to communities in late-2020, according to a press release from the company.

Plenty Los Angeles is expected to create as many as 50 new full-time jobs across a number of disciplines including growers, technicians and logistics and operations managers, according to the press release. Given the nature of indoor, vertical farming, jobs created will be high-quality, year-round, career-building positions.

Plenty grows pesticide-free produce and is building a network of farms, starting on the West Coast.  The company’s South San Francisco farm is preparing to ramp in the Bay Area with product rolling out at retailers across the area.

Plenty’s products include greens like Starlight Kale, a soft baby kale “highlighted by bright notes and a smooth finish,” according to the company, and Velvet Spice Blend, a crunchy, colorful mix of bok choy and mizuna “that brings a mustardy heat to the table.”
