- This Vertical Farm Wants To Be An Agriculture Company, Not A Tech Company
By Eillie Anzilotti - Wednesday Jul 12, 2017
FreshBox Farms is going big by focusing on harvests, not proprietary growing systems.
As the indoor farming industry has taken off in the last several years–over the next 10 years, indoor farming is expected to account for 50% of leafy green production, and grow to a $42 billion industry–it’s become apparent that it’s as much about technology as it is about agriculture. Bowery, a new startup operating out of an old warehouse building in Kearney, New Jersey, developed a sensor-based proprietary technology, called FarmOS, specifically to support the venture by determining necessary nutrient levels, as well as when crops are ready for harvesting. And in South San Francisco, Plenty is growing produce via a tech-supported vertical farming model that has already received $26 million from tech investors like Bezos Expeditions and Innovation Endeavors.

- Marijuana company plans to turn a small California town into a stoner's paradise
By Shishira Sreenivas - Sunday Aug 6, 2017
Looks like there'll soon be a Vegas-like destination in a remote part of California, designed just for pot lovers.
American Green Inc., a marijuana tech-based firm and self proclaimed "seed to sale" innovator from Arizona just bought a small California town called Nipton last Thursday. Yes, you read that right: a whole town.
According to a report from Business Insider, the company coughed up around $5 million for the small town that spans 120 acres of land.
Located on the Nevada border, about three hours away from Los Angeles, the town currently houses a small hotel, a solar farm, and a general store. But American Green has other plans for the scantly populated town of six. Read more...More about California, Marijuana, Weed, American Green, and Nipton
- Cannabis company plans to turn desert town into pot paradise
By JOHN LOCHER and JOHN ROGERS, Associated Press - Friday Aug 4, 2017
American Green Inc. announced Thursday it is buying all 80 acres of Nipton, which includes its Old West-style hotel, a handful of houses, an RV park and a coffee shop.American Green says it plans to expand that farm and also bottle and sell cannabis-infused water from Nipton's plentiful aquifer, joint moves that would make the town green in more ways than one.The town's current residents number fewer than two dozen and one of its major sources of revenue is the California Lottery tickets the general store sells to people who cross the state line from Nevada because they can't buy them there.Freeman bought the town in 1985 anyway and spent the next 30 years lovingly restoring its boutique hotel and general store, building canvas-covered "eco cabins" and stocking them with wood-burning stoves and swamp coolers.The small hotel has become a popular destination with desert aficionados and fans of the Old West, even though it's located so close to a major rail line that moves freight between Los Angeles and Salt Lake City that guests are handed earplugs with their room keys.
