Clearwater Organic Farms recently broke ground on its commercial hydroponic greenhouse in Monroe County.
The company is constructing a 10-acre, 475,000 sq.-ft. facility on the western edge of Eastman Business Park. It will be used to produce fresh, locally grown, organic baby leaf greens year-round.
The greenhouse will be constructed on property owned by LiDestri Food & Drink. The project will create up to 137 new full-time jobs.
The building is expected to complete by September 2020.
