A California-based greenhouse grower will be opening its first Southeastern agriculture grow facility in Peach County.
According to a news release from Gov. Brian Kemp, Pete’s is investing $18 million on an indoor controlled environment greenhouse.
“Agriculture is our top industry, and Pete’s will bring another game-changing, innovative, and sustainable indoor farming facility to Georgia as we continue to feed the world from the Peach State,” said Governor Kemp.
The company will be growing fresh greens, like lettuce and cress, and they say their hydroponic farming method will require 90% less land and water compared to traditional farming.
