One of the two Appharvest project locations here in Madison County is coming along. According to Appharvest, crews just completed the first lighting test at the AppHarvest Berea indoor farm for salad greens.

The high-tech farm’s hybrid lighting uses sunlight boosted by traditional and advanced LED lights that are 40% more efficient.

This 15-acre leafy facility will be one of the largest in the world and is expected to provide salad greens for top grocery stores and restaurants this year.
