How AppHarvest is bringing high-tech farming to Appalachia

Jonathan Webb is turning his dream of a high-tech farming hub in Appalachia into reality with AppHarvest. The company, which has raised more than $100 million in funding, is building some of the largest indoor farms in the world, combining conventional agricultural techniques with today’s technology to grow non-GMO, chemical-free produce to be sold to the top 25 U.S. grocers. The company’s first controlled-environment agriculture facility, will span 60 acres and open in 2020 in Morehead, KY.
We sat down to talk to Jonathan about community, agriculture, and being headquartered in Appalachia.
