2.2 Company Locations and Facilities
The farm is located in Calhoun county approximately 4.5 miles outside of Jasper.
The operation will utilize:
One large greenhouse, enclosing the vegetable area.
Filters, water treatment devices.
Outdoor vegetable facilities.
Business office building.
An additional portion of the operation will be the manure composting facility. Local and regional dairy operations have trouble with manure accumulations, and the company hopes to enter into contracts in removing the manure. Farmers Group will then turn this into a saleable product. The company plans to supply the region's nursery outlets with a top-quality, premium garden and soil amendment product for area horticulture.
