The New York Power Authority is helping Intergrow expand their indoor tomato growing operation.
The expansion is worth $8.5 million dollars and 10 acres big with an expectation for tomato plants to arrive August 9.
The goal is to continue to produce tomatoes through the winter months, this being the second phase of the expansion.
The third phase is expected to happen in 2023 and be 25 acres.
Right now, after this expansion, there will be 105 greenhouses, and after the third phase there will be 130.
The operation is currently set up on Ontario in Wayne County and is one of the biggest green house operations in the state.
James Williams, Intergrow’s business development manager, says that they’re always looking for people to join their team.
