Seeing what the land looks like underneath and official groundbreaking!

We aren’t big on formalities but we did want to celebrate the start of this massive project and what better day to celebrate than 4/20?

So after the post office closed we all got together at 4:20 on 4/20 to turn over the first shovel-full of dirt!

The excavator guys beat us there though and they already had peeled back all the topsoil with the grass.

In fact, they were already leveling the building site! It made such a difference to see the ground without the grass to really see the grade of the land and where everything would be.

Brad and Mara were the only ones that followed directions and wore their Apical Greens shirts that day. 🤦‍♂️

Overall it was a big moment to mark. It was the beginning of A LOT of work to be done!

Interesting side note, we have 10 kids between all of us! It can get loud fast when we have a family get-together! And is there anything better than a big dirt pile and cousins when you’re a kid?

Breaking Ground! Exciting things starting!

We are very excited to announce that we are finally breaking ground on our new facility.

We were held up for a long time getting all the i’s dotted and t’s crossed but we finally started this week!

We are putting in about 5,ooo sqft of greenhouse space and a new 4,000 sqft indoor growing and processing facility.

We also started our seedlings this week! Spring is always an exciting time!
