CAN (NB): Vertical farm for sale in Saint-Léolin

08:32:15Enogrow, a vertical farm based in Saint-Léolin, New Brunswick, has become available for sale. Established in 2019, the farm claims to be Canada's first vertical farm and is situated in a 24,000-square-foot (2230m2) building that was once a school. The business sits on 4 hectares of serene Acadian Peninsula land in Atlantic Canada.

Despite the sale, Enogrow's operations are still ongoing, offering a diverse range of fresh produce, including various lettuces, fine herbs, shoots, micro-greens, and edible flowers. Additionally, the farm produces processed products and ready-to-eat items. With a regional distribution network already in place, Enogrow is said to be attracting attention from major food retailers interested in providing its products to customers.

The property includes ample interior and exterior space, providing the opportunity for significant production volume increases or the addition of related commercial activities. Presently, the facilities feature a commercial kitchen for food processing, offering further potential for expansion and diversification.

Prospective buyers can explore options for training and partial financing from the current owners. For those intrigued by this promising venture, contacting a real estate agent for more information is advised.

Increasing electricity costs
During an interview with Radio Canada in February 2023, Founder Daniel Ratté said that he had to produce at least 4,100 more heads of lettuce per year to compensate for the increase in electricity costs. This was a result of the 8.9% increase in the electricity rate in Canada for its residential and commercial customers.
