The meteoric rise in popularity of Living Basil has prompted the construction of a third greenhouse at HerbCo in Duvall WA. "We’ve been astounded at the customer response,” said Dave Lykins, National Sales Mangler. “We opened our second greenhouse just this January, and by September we had practically maxed out capacity. We’re gratified that our customers love its flavor, aroma, and ease of use."
The new greenhouse measures 8,000 square feet and features two separate growing systems so that other products with different nutritional needs may be grown. The greenhouse uses computer monitoring for temperature, humidity and nutrition, and incorporates wireless alert capability to ensure quick response to any alarm. Construction is now complete, with the first harvest initiated December 13th. (see photos below).
