Chances are, that if you are buying several popular varieties of tomatoes from any major outlet, they came from a massive indoor facility nearby.
Intergrow Greenhouses took a different approach to how they grow cherry tomatoes, tomatoes-on-the vine and beefsteak tomatoes.
Back in 1998, the company, with one operating location in Albion, used authentic growing methods and combined them with exacting, state-of-the-art technologies to grow premium quality tomatoes. “Our perfectly controlled, closed environment allows us to pick at the peak of ripeness and deliver to our customers within 24 hours”, said Company co-owner Dirk Biemans.
Now, Intergrow Greenhouses wants to add a second facility on 100+ acres off Route 104 and Dean Parkway in the Town of Ontario. The indoor greenhouse structure will start out with a modest 25 acre structure and grow to a 55 acre building that will eventually employ between 100 to 150 people.
