Freshbay has announded a plan to launch a large-scale, deep earth geothermal powered, 19-acre controlled environment agriculture (CEA) facility expected to begin operations in Hinton, Alberta, in January 2024. The project will use cutting-edge vertical farming technologies, greenhouses, and scientific horticulture procedures; in order to create 100 per cent sustainable operations, to grow herbs, strawberries, and tropical fruits year-round.

Freshbay has strategic partnerships with the following companies:

  • Novus Earth Energy has signed on as a strategic partner to manage drilling, installation and maintenance of the geothermal wells.
  • Canada Banana Farms, a leading producer of exotic fruits, will manage growing fresh fruits while prioritizing sustainability.

They are committed to delivering innovative, sustainable, and economically viable solutions,” says Vic Reddy, CEO of Freshbay. ” We are thrilled to launch this large-scale, deep earth geothermal agriculture project, which has the potential to revolutionize indoor farming.
