Calaveras Mountain Series SMART Greenhouse

The Calaveras Mountain Series “SMART by Design” greenhouse offered by Next Generation Farming represents our agile design capabilities.  Given an unforeseen compliance change in Calaveras County, CA limiting the sidewalls to only 4’ to obtain an over the counter permit we were given a challenge.  By the next day our team was able to walk into the county office with revised drawings of our new “Calaveras Mountain Series” and were pleased to have the green light to move forward.  This series can be sold as a quick deploy offering to our customers along with “Engineer Stamped” for wind loads up to 110 MPH along with county snow load requirements.  Featuring a 4’ tall side wall would certainly give our customers useable space issues within the structure.  With this SMART by design system we are pleased with the ending result.  With only moving in 11” or approximately 1’ the height goes from 4’ to 6’2” gaining back the entire greenhouse as a useable foot print to our customers.

Quick-Deploy Series SMART Greenhouse

The Quick Deploy Series “SMART by Design” greenhouse offered by Next Generation Farming represents our competitive design capabilities.  Being able to give our customer the ability to build into a SMART CEA greenhouse is an amazing option.  Knowing that not everyone can spend over $100,000 for a 3,000 sq. ft. facility in on purchase was our goal for this Quick Deploy Series.  This series can be sold as a just a frame or over time be accessorized up to a full SMART by Design system.  Although, “Engineer Stamped” for wind loads up to 110 MPH along with county snow load requirements will be offered through our parts, the initial install will have a bearing on this outcome.  Featuring a 8’ tall vertical side wall certainly gives our customers useable space within the structure.  Without a doubt this SMART by design system gives our customers the option to “grow” into their vision.

Commercial Greenhouse Design

When we design greenhouse structures, our first priority at NextGen is to ensure the quality of the plant environment. Creating an environment that fosters the growth of plants & protects them from the elements should be the primary function of any greenhouse. Whether you select one of our smart greenhouses, or require a customized greenhouse design, the NextGen design team provides a full set of greenhouse plans.

At the end of the day, a greenhouse is nothing more than metal and plastic.  So what makes our greenhouses so popular?

They are:

  •  Designed and manufactured in-house in Northern California.
  • Pre-drilled so that they can be bolted together easily, without the need for special tools.
  • Designed for maximum logistical efficiency and transportation of building supplies.
  • Accompanied by engineered drawings to expedite the permit process where required.
  • Fully upgradable: Start with a simple deployment and add climate control and automation when needed.


Our stellar reputation, which we have earned due to the consistent quality of our commercial greenhouse structures, has made us the first choice for greenhouse growers.  We provide a complete set of construction plans for all of our greenhouse structures.

This helps to ensure that the greenhouse construction goes as smoothly as possible. We also provide our clients with the option to hire a NextGen greenhouse construction crew in which we will oversee every part of the greenhouse building process, from the design the greenhouse all the way through construction.

In addition to greenhouse construction, NextGen also offers:

  •       Greenhouse poly installation
  •       Project management
  •       Greenhouse plans
  •       Turnkey greenhouse design / build services

The NextGen greenhouse construction crews are experienced greenhouse builders who work closely with growers to ensure every greenhouse project is completed to your satisfaction.

How does a self-funded company go from a start-up to a profitable, self-sustaining business in 3 months?

The answer dates back to post-World War II Japan.  Faced with limited cash, space and natural resources, Japanese manufacturers adopted a different approach.  They made smaller factories and house only the raw materials needed for the day's production.  Combined with a focus on eliminating waste, a strategy later known as Just-in-Time manufacturing was born.

In the late 1940's, Toyota adopted this strategy into it's Toyota Production System.  Using the efficiency of just-in-time manufacturing and focusing on removing wasteful elements in manufacturing, Toyota grew from a small auto company to the world's largest automaker. In the process, they paved the way for what is now called Lean Manufacturing.

Nobody knows more about first-hand implementation of Lean Manufacturing than SmartCannabis President, John Taylor.  Interested in how manufacturing companies were improving their operations, Taylor travelled to Europe several times and studied the operations at one of the world's largest machine tool providers, the Trumpf Group.

The Trumpf Group created very high quality tools, but with over 10,000 employee and no systemized production system, they faced delays and excess inventories.  Trumpf began implementing the principles of lean manufacturing and it was dubbed the Synchro production system.  Taylor watched as department after department, plant after plant was transformed into a clockwork of precision.

In 2007, John applied his first-hand knowledge to help local manufacturer Taylor Wings survive the sharp economic downturn. Lean-manufacturing principles allowed Taylor Wings to operate like an orchestra, in perfect synchronization.

Fast forward nearly 10-years and trend toward greenhouse cultivation was an industry trend he couldn't ignore.  He knew he draw on his experience, build a better greenhouse and a better greenhouse company.  With use of his synchro knowledge he quickly developed Just in Time Systems geared specifically for commercial Cannabis production with acknowledged global Lean Standards.   Not long after, Next Generation Farming was born.
