With the evolution of technology, farmers no longer need to dedicate land to grow crops. They can do it indoors with a much smaller footprint. Clark County has begun to see these types of farms spring up in recent years.

Cellar Mushrooms is such a farm. The sibling-owned and -operated business is run entirely in a 400-foot indoor space that houses the farmers’ lab, spawn room and fruiting room, as well as supplies and equipment.
