PHEW! We made it through the holidays, and we hope each and every one of you had a fabulous holiday season. With the new year upon us, the Urban Organics team is eager and ready to take on what lies ahead in the new year. We haven't provided an update in a while, so here's what has been happening.
As you can see in the photo, construction is underway at the Schmidt farm location. The once empty warehouse is now a noisy, dusty construction zone. The canopy is almost completely enclosed which will provide us with additional production space, concrete is being excavated and poured, and parts of the warehouse no longer needed are being removed. Each component of the construction process is in preparation for the build-out of an amazing aquaponic farm that will produce an estimated 275,00 pounds of fish and 475,000 pounds of produce annually. Needless to say, we are truly looking forward to the triumphs and challenges of the new year.
As stated previously, we are excited to bring you along on our journey, and we hope you continue to follow our progress into the new year and beyond. Are you ready? We are.
