This followed information about an alleged cultivation of cannabis in a unit of the site.
In addition to the factories, the Atherstone and Coleshill team also discovered that electricity had been bypassed in the area.
They were forced to call an electricity supplier to cut the circuit to the property in order to secure the premises.
Investigations to find out who is behind the farm are ongoing.
Anyone with information, CCTV or dash cam that could assist the Warwickshire Police investigation should call 101 Incident ref 67 of 5 August.
Details can also be passed to agents through the independent charity Crimestoppers, which is free to call from a landline and confidential, on 0800 555 111.
