In addition to sourcing healthy foods to local communities, each acre of greenhouse will create over 10 jobs, and every job created on the farm has a multiplier effect creating over 2.5 jobs elsewhere in that community. Its owners developed the VSAT program to equip others to start their own Archi's Acres across the country.
