US: Future of farming on display at Hamburg hydroponic lettuce operation

Jason Henry says his little lettuce operation in Hamburg is just "an experiment" adding "we've got it scheduled so there is a fresh crop of plants coming out every week".

What's remarkable about Jason's set-up in his words "it's outfitted to produce 40,000 heads of lettuce per year, over 16,000 pounds of fresh, local lettuce available any day." All of that output is taking place in a small green house less than a tenth of an acre.
