Tweed Farms unfurls sky blue banner
To celebrate the first Happy Hour hosted at our Niagara-on-the-Lake greenhouse July 12, we unveiled the latest addition to the Tweed Farms facility – a brand new banner! The sky blue sign was unfurled to cheers on a scorching hot day last week, unofficially marking the start of summer in the heart of Canada’s wine country.
As the temperature climbed to a sweltering 33C, more than double the seasonal average for the area, only smiles could be spotted on the faces of the 40 or so people gathered outside the revamped offices on the greenhouse grounds. Over cold drinks and good chatter, the banner was unveiled to heated applause.
A day that helped mark an early crescendo for operations at Tweed Farms, the Happy Hour event proved a great means of reflecting on the recent growth of our company in Southern Ontario. This spring, our Niagara-on-the-Lake greenhouse was approved by Health Canada for a 25,000 sq. ft. processing and storage upgrade.
"We acquired the greenhouse over two years ago to position ourselves as a large scale, low-cost producer capable of supplying a sizeable percentage of the market," said Tweed CEO Bruce Linton. "This infrastructure completion and Health Canada approval milestone is a testament to the team at Tweed Farms who continue to execute our capacity-building as planned."
With a production space of 375,000 sq. ft., the facility has over the last six months transformed to a vertically integrated campus capable of cultivating, trimming, curing and storing dried cannabis. Once our first crop is harvested in the fall, Tweed Farms will also seek a final sales license, ensuring that our customers can buy product grown at Niagara-on-the-Lake.
In the meantime, keep your eye on our shop, as we’ll have flowers from some of the awesome strains we have growing under the hot sun at Tweed Farms available. Already, the greenhouse has started to resemble an arboretum – with our plants taking on tree-like proportions. We can only imagine what they’ll look like in October!
Here’s to Future Growth!
