Today we bring you an exciting update about the progress at the Urban Organics Schmidt’s location in St. Paul, MN! This past week a site visit was conducted and the development inside the building is incredible. 


Making Tracks

published on Feb 15, 2016

It's been a while since we have provided an update, but trust us, we have been busy! In the past couple of weeks, more concrete has been excavated, walls have been framed, insulated and drywalled. Plumbing and HVAC are also being installed. What may seem like a flurry of chaotic activity filled with clouds of dust and loud machinery is actually a well-choreographed "dance".

This past week has been filled with the usual farm activities such as planting and harvesting, but fish monitoring has also been added. As mentioned previously, our initial batch of hybrid striped bass has been moved to the grow-out tanks, and we received our second batch of fingerlings. They are enjoying their brief stay in quarantine prior to moving to their permanent residence.
