Our indoor grow is where we perform experiments with the University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS). In addition, young plants sometimes start here before being moved to the outdoor greenhouse. The indoor grow provides a safe environment from potential hurricanes.
Our outdoor greenhouses are custom-built from raw materials selected for the South Florida climate. Our hemp plants grow in the greenhouses before they are transplanted in the field. The greenhouses act as an early buffer while the plants gain strength and size; they are protected but still receive everything that they need to thrive. The plants are watered through our automated irrigation programs, they receive healthy airflow, and they enjoy Florida's natural sunlight by day and additional lighting by night via our greenhouse lighting technology.
Comprised of an initial 70 acres in Homestead, Florida (which can be scaled up quickly to more than 110 acres and thereafter to well in excess of 1,000 acres), South Tip's outdoor cultivation area consists of prime agricultural cultivation land that has withstood the test of many decades of farming, and has passed with flying colors. The land is now used by South Tip exclusively for the cultivation of CBD-rich hemp plants.
