Vertical farm shuts down operations
A vertical farming operation set to open a large facility in Hanover Twp. has shut down.
Upward Farms announced on their website that they are ceasing to operate in the vertical farming sector.
The company, based in New York, is also shutting down its Brooklyn Headquarters Farm, according to the website.
Upward Farms received at least $1 million in state funding to help construct the farm in Luzerne County. The future of the over 250,000 square foot facility on Tradeport Road is unclear.
