Revolution Farms, a leading indoor hydroponics farm in Caledonia, announced today that Tammam (Tam) Serage has taken over as head grower at the farm. Serage came to Revolution Farms from Shenandoah Growers in Harrisonburg, Virginia, where he most recently served as the farm’s corporate grower. Serage has more than 25 years of practical experience in the efficient and sustainable production of organic herbs, microgreens and decorative plants.

“As we continue to scale the farm, Tam’s experience and knowledge will ensure we can grow the very best salad greens possible, while simultaneously improving our sustainability initiatives,” said John Green, CEO of Revolution Farms. “His extensive hydroponics expertise will help us continue to make our product better and more nutritious, ensuring it’s the best salad option for Michigan and Midwest consumers.”

Serage previously worked as head grower at farms in Maryland and Delaware, as well as serving in multiple growing roles at farms in Alabama and Saudi Arabia. He holds Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Horticulture from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, as well as an Associate of Science from Virginia Western Community College. 

Revolution Farms’ 85,000 sq.ft. indoor farm, located on 76th St in Caledonia, has the capacity to produce more than 500,000 pounds of fresh lettuce and salad greens for Michigan and the Midwest region every year.

“Revolution Farms has the momentum and the people behind it to innovate hydroponic farming, and expand growing operations on a large scale for Michigan and beyond,” said Serage. “My passion is identifying and incorporating new technologies and sustainable growing techniques that will produce healthier greens at greater yields. I am thrilled to join John and the Revolution Farms team to be part of this fast-growing farm.”
