According to The Blast, Tyson broke ground on a 40-acre plot of land in California City, a small desert town 60 miles southwest of Death Valley National Park.

The facility, Tyson Ranch, was unveiled Monday, the same day the Golden State began legal adult-use sales.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Twenty acres of land will be dedicated to controlled-climate cultivation.
  •  A “cultivation school” will offer classes on state-of-the-art growing techniques.
  • The operation will include an extraction facility, an edibles factory and a plant and supply store.
  • The ranch will carry out research for the medicinal uses of cannabis.
  • The operating company, Tyson Holistic, supports former members of the armed forces by employing mainly veterans.
  • The facility hasn’t said when it will open to the public.
