Plenty Farms in Compton to Begin Local Hiring

Plenty’s Newly Constructed Building Will Be Home to the World’s Highest Output, Large-Scale, Indoor Vertical Farm

Compton, CA – One of the newest additions to Compton’s business community, Plenty Unlimited Inc., is now beginning to ramp up the hiring process for its vertical farm in partnership with Compton CareerLink. Plenty’s high-tech, indoor Compton farm is expected to create over 50 new full-time jobs across several disciplines including growers, technicians, logistics and operations managers. Given the nature of indoor, vertical farming, jobs created will be high-quality, year-round, career-building positions.

“We are happy to see the Plenty farm start to grow its roots in the community during the build out process,” said Mayor Aja Brown. “Many residents rely on CareerLink to guide them in the right direction, so I know Plenty will find wonderful, qualified candidates right here in our City. The vegetables Plenty produces will be proudly grown and managed by Compton residents, and we look forward to creating a solid partnership with them.”

Plenty has several open leadership positions in Compton including Senior Manager of Operations, Automation Controls Engineer, Senior Grower, Maintenance Supervisor, and Sales Manager. Additional roles will be posted on the Plenty website in the coming months. Learn more and apply at plenty.ag/careers/.

The General Contractor on the site is also subcontracting with various trade companies that will be hiring locally through January. To learn more about these construction roles, contact CareerLink (310.605.3050/cfields@comptoncity.org) from 7am to 6pm.

“With Compton’s rich agricultural history and ongoing appreciation for farming, we knew Plenty’s farm would fit right into the community,” said Plenty’s co-founder, Dr. Nate Storey. “We are committed to hiring locally and look forward to establishing a robust operation that will produce delicious, pesticide-free leafy greens for Compton and the entire Los Angeles area." 

Plenty’s sustainable farm delivers produce year-round that tastes like it was picked fresh from the garden. ‌The‌ ‌company’s‌ ‌plant‌ ‌scientists,‌ ‌engineers‌ ‌and‌ ‌farmers‌ ‌have‌ ‌developed‌ its ‌indoor‌ ‌vertical‌ ‌farming‌ ‌technology‌ ‌to‌ ‌grow ‌nutrient-rich‌ ‌plants‌ ‌with‌ ‌extraordinary‌ ‌flavor.‌ ‌Plenty‌ ‌farms‌ ‌deliver‌ ‌produce‌ ‌with‌ ‌zero‌ ‌pesticides and no GMOs,‌ ‌and‌ ‌are‌ ‌designed‌ ‌to‌ ‌use‌ ‌less‌ ‌than‌ ‌one‌ ‌percent‌ ‌the‌ ‌space‌ ‌of‌ ‌conventional‌ ‌agriculture‌ while saving over a million gallons of water each week.‌ ‌‌In 2019, Plenty chose the City of Compton for its newest and largest indoor vertical farm.
