Sunfest Organic Herbs broke ground in February 2012 and began distributing produce to Whole Foods Market, Publix, and Wal-Mart along the East Coast by the end of the first year. The farm is 65 acres with 7 acres in greenhouses with automated walls that open and close via an onsite weather station. Farmer Joe Falco, formerly of HerbThyme in California, designed the state-of-the-art operation that is backed by investor Cliff Rosen.
