A 77,000-square-foot hydroponic greenhouse is getting closer to getting its locally grown greens in stores.

Local startup Greenswell Growers held a grand opening ceremony for its $17 million Goochland-based and headquarters Friday, where operations are already underway.

The indoor farm facility will operate year-round and is expected to produce about 3.7 million pounds of produce over the next three years. The facility currently grows baby leaf greens but could expand into other types of produce in the future.

The facility is on a 30-acre property at 1343 Hockett Road in West Creek Industrial Park. The facility first planted crops about a month ago.
