Cricket Farm & Comm. Greenhouse Project: Status- Business Recruited, PPA Signed, Limited Operations

Updated: Nov 24, 2021

Ramel Family Farms choosing Raton, NM was no coincidence, it was a successful match made by Jess. One of the Farms' owners, Kayvan, was investing in nearby communities and shared Jess' vision of a shared economy.

Jess assisted with the negotiation of a Public Private Agreement and Local Economic Development Agreement between Ramel Farms and the City of Raton to utilize a vacant factory as the new location for Ramel's growing operations.

Ramel Family Farms will form the first employee-owned cooperative will practice indoor agriculture year round through a cricket farm providing a Frass export of manure as well as building commercial greenhouse operations to fill a food dessert need across the region. #Project #LEDA #Press
