US (NC): Hydroponic farm buzzing with activity

Wendy Woolard’s family had been farmers for a century, but a change in the economy left several turkey houses sitting abandoned. They were, however, the perfect location for a business venture.

A couple years ago, Wendy and her husband, Jeff, began growing lettuce. The opportunity began in the greenhouse, but the couple soon developed an interest in expanding and growing the greens inside.

According to Wendy, lettuce is a winter crop, and the hot and humid temperatures of North Carolina summers aren’t conducive to good lettuce growing. That’s when the Woolards started thinking hydroponic.

Thus Autryville’s Buzz was born.
