Adding cannabis to their list of crops has put Village Farms on the verge of becoming Canada’s largest cannabis producer
Village Farms is one of the largest producers of premium quality greenhouse tomatoes, bell peppers and cucumbers in North America. All vegetables are grown hydroponically in a glass-enclosed high technology environment. The company uses sophisticated computer systems to control irrigation, fertilizers, carbon dioxide, light, temperature, ventilation, humidity, and other climatic factors.
Now, Village Farms is getting into cannabis production. The company made an official announcement of a new joint venture agreement with Emerald Health Therapeutics.
As a result of that agreement, they will convert an initial 25 acres of their Ladner, B.C. greenhouse facility into a state of the art glasshouse for the annual production of 75,000 kilograms of medical cannabis.
