Cultiva Farms USA recently celebrated the completion of its new cold storage facility, part of a $10 million project to build a leafy salad crop farm in Jennings. Cultiva Farms USA is a partnership between an Italian family company, Cultiva, and the largest American producer of fresh-cut vegetables and fruit, Taylor Farms. The location is bringing Italian growing techniques to the US market to increase production of salad crops in the eastern United States. Hamilton County Development Authority (HCDA) awarded a two-part grant to support the company’s growth. The investment highlights Hamilton County’s multi-million strength in the agriculture industry which currently boasts more than $400 million gross regional product.
