Fine Fettle wins zoning approval for Bloomfield grow facility

Fine Fettle received zoning approvals from the town of Bloomfield on Thursday, paving the way for the company to move forward with its first marijuana grow facility.

The Connecticut-based cannabis retailer’s social equity cultivator business -- FFD 149, created through a partnership with Hartford resident Kennard Ray -- received a special permit to construct a cannabis production facility at 10 Mosey Drive.

The proposed new building would take up 45,600 square feet of the 10.41-acre property, with between 18,000 to 20,000 square feet reserved for grow space.

According to renderings of the facility, Fine Fettle plans to have nine rooms for flowering, three for vegetation, three for drying, one for curing, one for trimming, and one for packaging. The facility will also include a large room for cannabis extraction.

Now with approvals from Bloomfield, Fine Fettle Chief Operations Officer Ben Zachs said the company can submit its documentation to the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection for final approvals from the state.

“This gets us on the path towards our final license,” Zachs told the Hartford Business Journal.

Zachs said the company hopes to begin construction by May or June.

Fine Fettle’s social equity cultivator license is for businesses planning to open large-scale operations of more than 15,000 square feet of grow space, differing from micro-cultivator licenses that go to establishments with between 2,000 square feet and 10,000 square feet of grow space.
