Auxly Cannabis Group Inc. and its subsidiary, Robinsons Cannabis Inc. announced the launch of a new large-scale facility in Annapolis Valley, N.S.

Robinsons Outdoor Grow is about 158 acres of land in Hortonville, within 25 kilometres from of Robinsons’ indoor facility. The outdoor grow is managed by veteran grower Andrew Robinson. Robinsons OG will use a range of proprietary genetics with a history of success in this climate and apply several outdoor growing techniques commonly used in the fruit crop production and wine industries.

“Under Andrew’s supervision, Robinsons OG will give us the ability to grow a broader range of Robinsons’ genetics, using Robinsons’ cultivation methodologies, and take advantage of the unique terroir of the Annapolis Valley to bring Canadian consumers Robinsons branded cannabis products, all produced with an unwavering commitment to quality and craftsmanship,” said Auxly CEO Hugo Alves.

The company said in a statement on Nov. 15 that it expects the capital expenditure for the buildout of Robinsons OG to be up to approximately $15 million of which approximately $6 million has already been funded with the remainder expected to be contributed through the first half of 2020.

Expected yield of the facility is expected to be approximately 200 kilograms per acre. Robinsons OG expects to plant approximately 20 acres in the 2020 season and scale operations in the following years.
