Red Sun Farms announced today that Phase I of their second US-based greenhouse operation is scheduled to break ground next week in the Buckeye state. The new greenhouse will be strategically located a few hundred yards from I-75, a major interstate that will provide access to fresh greenhouse produce for nearly 60% of US population within a 10- hour transport radius.
“We are incredibly excited to expand our USA Grown footprint with the announcement of our second US-based farm operation. State and local government officials have been phenomenal to partner with as we look forward to many years of future growth in Ohio.”, says Paul J. Mastronardi, co-owner of the project and son of Red Sun Farms owner Jamie Mastronardi.
Phase 1 of the Ohio greenhouse will feature 20 acres with state of the art production area and 26,000 square foot distribution center to provide our retail and foodservice partners with some of the freshest, most flavorful greenhouse produce in North America.
Future phases are planned with the potential to reach 200 acres within the next 7-10 years resulting in the creation of over 400 jobs for the area.
“In addition to cutting edge technology, phase 1 will employ the use of high pressure sodium lighting to provide our retail partners and consumers with fresh, local, greenhouse produce, even during the cold winter months in Ohio.” States co-owner and Master Grower, Louis Chibante
