Brad Fourby is the Founder of Leafy Green Farms based in Pittsburg, Kansas.
The farm uses shipping containers and vertical hydroponics to deliver hyperlocal vegetables and herbs to area businesses and residents. The farm grows and harvests weekly all year long. Climate does not affect the farm as it grows many specialty herbs and vegetables not normally available to this region of Kansas.
In this episode of the Rural Business Show, Fourby talks about his background and his journey into establishing Leafy Green Farms, including relocating from California to southeast Kansas. We discuss the concept of micro-farming and how it can benefit rural areas. We explore challenges the business has faced and how Brad sees it progressing over the next few years.
