Bosch Berries Acquires Former AppHarvest Facility in Somerset

Gov. Andy Beshear announced a new business is coming to Pulaski County. Officials say Bosch Berries, an international grower and distributor of bell peppers, blackberries and strawberries, will bring a new greenhouse operation to Somerset. Bosch Berries acquired a previously established AppHarvest facility in Somerset to locate the company’s first greenhouse operation in the United States. The business is set to invest nearly $50 million and create 28 full-time jobs. Officials said the existing greenhouse has been in operation since November 2022, is more than 30 acres and can grow approximately one million strawberry plants at a time. Pulaski County Judge/Executive Marshall Todd said he hopes that they will prosper in their new home and grow not only locally sourced products, but also community relationships we can cultivate for generations to come.
