New Greenhouse and operational advice with employees

Are there a few professionals that can help me out? I am working on a grow design, and I am looking into new greenhouse systems. I am up for ideas, but it seems the industry standard is quickly becoming 10k sq ft greenhouses, then stacked together. The size operation I am talking about will eventually be about 20 acres, but will be starting with smaller greenhouses, eventually working up to a full 20 acre greenhouse grow.

Greenhouse companies to use:

FF (has yet to call me back)
Conley
agratech
Farmtek aka growspan series 1000 (price before concrete and a few other extras comes in at about 250k)

What company is best? What company may have limitations on what size operation they can take on?

Is this the model most others are seeing successful? 10k sq ft greenhouses run by 1 farmer and a small crew? Any other details or helpful information would be greatly appreciated.



Pictured is the A1000 by Farmtek These start out at 30x90 and you can stack them side by side making them as big as needed.

What commercial crop is closest to cannabis, which is still grown in greenhouses? You may find more information in those camps for now. It looks like we're kind of shy of those growers here on icmag just yet.

Not familiar with those manufacturer..
You want poly or glass ?
Light dep or not light dep ?
Year long or seasonal ?
What type of heating system (propane,wood chip, gas electricity). ???
Light or no light ?
What climate control ??
Your climate/region will dictate a lot...

You should visit other commercial greenhouse growers (not cannabis) in your area to get a better picture..
