Reflections from sunny Canada. Where the market is getting turbulent… What have growers etc in other locations found following legalization. What is the demand for space like?
Chocolate factory turned grow operation? That has to be the best-smelling building in the history of the planet.
They even grow Chocolope there! Willy Wonka would be proud…
In the US, Arizona is a unique state in that it doesn’t restrict grow operation sizes. Some of the largest in the US are here in AZ.
This one has just been announced here… 800,000 square feet. How do the large operations size up in the States?
Copperstate Farms is 40 acres… or 1,742,400 square feet.
There’s another one near Gilbert that’s 9 acres.
How do they get around inside greenhouses of that size? Do they have bicycles or scooters?
That makes an interesting point - what are the largest Indoor, Greenhouse, and Outdoor operations? There are a number of massive greenhouse operations in Canada as well - more coming.
FYI, we’ve got an article in the works about the largest operations in North America. Keep an eye out.
