Las Vegas farm produces a million tons of produce annually. Wait, what?

Romaine lettuce and arugula weren't what came to mind when I read "$30 million Las Vegas farm."  I thought it might be something like, well, not farm farms. And yet that's exactly what's going on here.  In a desert state that usually imports 92% of its food produce, a leading company has pioneered hydroponic farming that produces high-quality vegetables at 100% water and nutrient efficiency.  No, the vegetables aren't the kind you take for glaucoma. The whole thing works like a charm and they're already selling to restaurants; soon they'll be selling to grocers.  It's the freshest, cleanest, most nutritious stuff you'll ever find for hundreds of miles around, growing right in the middle of the desert.  Awesome sauce.  And wait until they start growing the fruiting plants!

Pretty amazing. If this is profitable and sustainable in Las Vegas, it opens the door for other desert locations around the world. We owe a collective thanks to the marijuana industry for advancing much of this technology!

Imagine other cities doing this, then we'll see a drastic improvement on food demand. Love the article!
