Local Grown Salads farms will provide healthy and nutritious food, create local jobs, and use sustainable technology. The farms are strategically located at the end of the supply chain and close to the consumer; therefore, ready-to-eat salads are delivered locally on the same day they are harvested. Each Local Grown Salads farm will employ 15 – 20 people. Individuals from the community will be trained to be farm managers, produce harvesters, produce cleaners, produce sorters, and packagers. A farm in the urban neighborhood will provide healthy food in priority areas.
Anticipated OZF Structure: We see an Opportunity Zone Fund is created, purchases a building in a Qualified Opportunity Zone, and owns the LGS Farm as a Qualified Opportunity Zone business. The LGS Farm operates in the building with a 10 year triple-net lease.
