Youngkin announces expansion of innovative indoor farm

Governor Glenn Youngkin recently announced the expansion of a high-tech, indoor farm in Prince William County.

Beanstalk Farms second facility in the region will create 18 new jobs and include an investment of $4.1 million.

The farm anticipates the production of 2.1 million pounds of leafy greens and fresh-cut herbs annually.

Beanstalk Farms utilizes vertical farming and a pesticide free approach to create a sustainable agricultural system that can produce quality produce year round.

To secure the expansion project, Youngkin approved a $100,000 grant from the Governor’s Agriculture and Forestry Development Fund which will be matched by Prince William County.

Following the announcement on the new project, Youngkin also signed a bill to clarify the existing classifications of farm machinery for tax exemptions or rate reductions.
