Millennium Pacific Greenhouses is launching its business growing tomatoes on the vine in Cummings Valley, after construction of its buildings was completed this November.
“After four years it became a reality,” said Mehrdad Elyasi, president of Millennium Pacific Greenhouses.
Millennium is just the most recent company to open greenhouses in the Cummings Valley, taking advantage of the ideal weather conditions.
Project planning first began in 2014, with greenhouse construction beginning in early 2017. Millennium's 15-acre facility grows anywhere from 62,000 to 63,000 plants annually. Workers constantly tend to the health of the plants to speed up production.
