Second Chances Farm, LLC was created to establish a series of indoor, vertical farms (plant factories) in Opportunity Zones throughout the United States. Each farm would hire almost exclusively men and women returning from prison to give them entrepreneurial opportunities through growing produce on a commercial scale.
The first farm will begin to grow produce in an Opportunity Zone in Wilmington, Delaware in 2019. It will serve the Mid-Atlantic Area between New York and Washington DC to minimize Food Miles, a term which refers to the distance food is transported from the time of its production until it reaches the consumer, and thus minimize the adverse consequences of long-distance food transport throughout the country.
