Langley’s CubicFarms today announced the sale of 27 CubicFarm System modules in Winnipeg at a sale price of over $5 million.
The new modules were purchased by experienced greenhouse farmers Sheldon and Carrie Enns who operate the Green Valley Garden Centre.
The Enns have been supplying high-quality vegetables and ornamental plants in Southeastern Manitoba for the past 12 years and will use the CubicFarm Systems automated indoor growing technology to grow commercial scale amounts of leafy greens, herbs, and microgreens in the Winnipeg area.
“We’re farmers first and care about the environment and feeding our community. With the addition of the CubicFarms technology, we’re growing our business in a sustainable and responsible way. This allows us to maximize production of fresh, more reliable, locally grown food,” said Sheldon Enns.
In addition to the purchase of 27 modules, the Enns will work with CubicFarms Garden, the company’s produce brokerage team and use the award-winning ALLWays Local produce brand.
“CubicFarms is the best local chain ag-tech solution we’ve found,” said Enns. “We aren’t just purchasing equipment; we’re starting a long-term relationship and joining a network of seasoned Cubic farmers. The brokerage team, ongoing research and development, promotional support, and a program to purchase inputs and packaging were significant in our decision. It’s important for us to be a part of CubicFarms mission and commitment to improve food security.”
