Supervisor Bill Reilich Participates in Ground Breaking Ceremony for Clearwater Farms

This morning, Supervisor Reilich joined representatives from Clearwater Organic Farms, Greater Rochester Enterprise, Empire State Development, and Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo for a ground breaking ceremony for Clearwater Organic Farms’ new 475,000 square foot hydroponic greenhouse.

Clearwater Organic Farms uses cutting-edge hydroponic technology to produce fresh, locally grown, year-round organic baby leaf greens to supply markets throughout New York State. The facility for Clearwater Organic Farms, which will be constructed at the Eastman Business Park in Greece, will be the largest hydroponic commercial greenhouse of its kind in the United States and will produce more than 2.7 million pounds of fresh produce annually.

“I am thrilled to see the Clearwater Organic Farms project moving forward, which is a logical addition to LiDestri’s growing food and beverage industry in Greece” said Supervisor Reilich. “I would like to thank the management teams from Clearwater Organic Farms and LiDestri for entrusting the Town of Greece and this region with their investment. We are certain they will continue growing and expanding”.
