First Soil-Based Organic Indoor Farm in Seattle Area
Soli Organic™ to Build First Soil-Based Organic Indoor Farm in Seattle Area
Soli Organic Inc. (“the Company”), the nation’s only soil-based, controlled environment agriculture company delivering 100% USDA certified organic produce to more than 20,000 retail stores nationwide, today announced plans to build a new soil-based, controlled environment agriculture farm in Marysville, Washington. The 130,000 square-foot farm will supply 5 million pounds of affordable USDA certified organic herbs and leafy greens each year and support 150 local, well-paying jobs in the Seattle area.
Soli Organic believes organic produce should be accessible and affordable to all people. The Company’s ‘biology first, technology to scale’ philosophy flips the typical high-tech controlled environment agriculture script in support of this mission. The natural benefits of its soil-based growing system – combined with the highly targeted use of technology – enable the Company to offer organic herbs and leafy greens with all of the sustainability benefits of indoor-grown produce, at a much lower price point.
