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. Village Farms vegetables are grown hydroponically (without the use of soil) in a glass enclosed high technology environment using sophisticated computer systems to control irrigation, fertilizers, carbon dioxide, light, temperature, ventilation, humidity and other climatic factors. Village Farms’ greenhouse vegetables are produced by plants that have been selected for their taste, quality and other characteristics and are not genetically modified.
Village Farms is getting into cannabis production. The company made an official announcement of a new joint venture agreement with Emerald Health Therapeutics, which 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 medical, and if permitted by applicable law, non-therapeutic cannabis for the adult-use market.
