Additionally, Vittone’s Hydroponic Crop Manager, Jordan Grudley, provides a step-by-step overview of the growth cycle that takes place within the 40-ft shipping container, from seedling to finished product. Vittone concludes the video with advice for young and beginning farmers wanting to pursue a similar operation and comments regarding the value of working with a trusted lender, like Farm Credit of the Virginias.
