BrightFarms is hosting an event on May 7, 2021 to celebrate the grand opening of their next farm in Hendersonville, North Carolina. The event is open to the public and will host individuals interested in learning more about BrightFarms’ vision to scale local indoor farming across the U.S.
The ceremony will be hosted via Zoom and will provide viewers with a first-hand look at the company’s most technologically advanced farm to date. The new greenhouse will add to BrightFarms’ network of local, sustainable greenhouse farms; serving local markets including Charlotte, N.C.; Winston-Salem, N.C; Greenville, S.C.; Spartanburg, S.C.; and Atlanta, GA. Existing farms already in operation are in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Illinois.
There will be several prominent speakers at the event, including North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis, Sam Kass, former White House Chef and Senior Policy Advisor for Nutrition, and Steve Platt, BrightFarms CEO. The event will conclude with a virtual tour hosted by Founder, Paul Lightfoot, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the farm’s first harvest.
