We were turned down for the warehouse space that I had mentioned before. The owner decided to rent it to a guy he's known for 30 years with an established business. But that's OK because we found a better spot for way less money! Here she is in all her glory!!!
This building is in Yakima, WA which is 40 minutes from where I live and go to school. It actually makes a lot more sense from a business prospective than our original plan of having it in Ellensburg. It is the same size as the last place but it is $500 cheaper per month. PLUS, Yakima has a much larger population so we will have a bigger market for our products.
We don't officially have the place yet but as soon as the application and credit check goes through it should be ours!!! Prospective move in is February 1st. Crazy to think that a couple weeks ago we hadn't even thought about doing this. We just had the idea randomly and decided to go for it.
If you're wondering how a warehouse has anything to do with a farm... then that's a great question. This is going to be an indoor vertical farm that grows microgreens. Microgreens are just the shoots of plants like peas, sunflowers, and radishes. They are harvested only 10 days or so after planting and are the most nutrient dense food you can eat!
Here are some pics from other microgreen farms:
