Year-round cucumbers grown in Minnesota
Added on 20 October 2022
Bushel Boy Farms is the first company in Minnesota to produce the crop year-round.
Cucumbers are just the second crop to be grown using Bushel Boy Farms’ high-wire production system.
The company, now in its 32nd year in operation, is already well-known for its nine varieties of fresh, garden-flavor tomatoes, as well as greenhouse-grown strawberries, launched in 2021. The news follows a recent report from The Food Institute that continued investments in the vertical farming industry will bolster its projected market value to $20.9 billion by 2029, a sign of the market’s value during current global economic and supply chain challenges.
