This tunnel is 30 ft. wide, and unlike one of our recent posts that displayed what thermostatically controlled electrical ventilation looks like, this structure ventilates off of 100% electricity-free passive airflow; all vents and windows still auto open and close, but they operate using hardware components that don't require electricity #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #flowerfarm #flowerfarming #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Have you planted for winter harvest yet? When you need to plant depends on what zone you're in, and what crop being planted. Eliot Coleman's books do a great job walking through planting schedules for tunnel plantings. Michigan State University also has a great planting schedule available on their farm resources page (at least the last time we checked) @ohiocityfarm has already started their plantings in around half of their tunnels #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #clevelandohio #ohiocity #216 #caterpillartunnel #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Air movement is an important part of any covered growing spaces' design. Whether you want to go with passive air movement, or prefer a thermostatically controlled ventilation setup, air movement is key to maintaining a plants production. It helps prevent hurtful temperature spikes, and it also reduces the risk of harmful bacteria and pests that remain in a structure with stagnant overly-humid air. The tunnel in this picture is definitely ready to move some major air. #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #plantnursery #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #growingfood #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

This 30 ft. wide greenhouse model is set-up at a plant nursery for the specific purpose of providing covered retail space for customers to browse plants all year long. While we love the look of the tunnels no matter where they are, we definitely love the way they look when surrounded by beautiful plants! #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #nurserylife #plantnursery #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

High tunnel also doubles as bike garage on rainy evening. Good company while weeding and listening to the rain. Mmmmm fall... foreground: Starflower scabiosa, background: bike fixer #mwfcfarm #tunnelvisionhoops #coloradorain

Are you thinking of ordering a High Tunnel or Greenhouse with ridiculously heavy equipment as a part of the package? Heaters, Typhoon Fans, or any number of heavy items might be a part of your ideal package; if this describes you, and you don't have a forklift or tractor to help you along the way, a Duct Jack is a manually operated single person lift that can help lift equipment up to 18' high. Using a Duct Jack can help you get heavy High Tunnel equipment in the correct position for installation. These are available at most equipment rental facilities for about $100 a day, and while that might seem steep it is completely worth it if you are working on a build with limited access to machinery to assist in lifting your equipment...not to mention safety first! #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #greenhousedesign #cannabiscultivation #ohiofarm #indianafarm #michiganfarm #greenhouses #helpfultools #tunnelvisionhoops

Move much air? Air movement is important for healthy plants, and while there are ways to move air passively it is hard to beat forced air movement for those with access to electricity. These Typhoon fans (and interior HAF fans) are going to keep this tunnels' plants in tip top #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #fourseasonfarming #seasonextension #smallfarm #csafarm #greenhouseventilation #cannabiscultivation #nurserylife #growingfood #greenhousegrown #ohiofarm #indianafarm #californiagrown #coloradofarm #urbanfarn #ruralfarm #tunnelvisionhoops

If you build it they will come...this tunnel here is going to be a central part of the retail space for this Nursery in southern Ohio. It extends right up to their retail pavilion, and has an 8 ft wide concrete pathway through the entire pavilion and structure. Eventually, the gravel on either side of the walkway will have greenhouse benches full of perennials and annuals for sale to the public #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #nurserygreenhouse #nurserylife #treefarm #flowerfarm #yearroundfarming #fourseasonfarming #seasonextension #csafarm #smallfarm #californiagrown #cannabiscultivation #ohiofarm #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #tunnelvisionhoops

A lot of people need large entrances so they can get equipment in and out of their structures; steel roll-up doors and sliding doors do this well, but manual economy doors comprised of greenhouse plastic are often a good compromise between the cost and size of a rolling or sliding door. Usually the economy door is primarily that (economy), however, in instances where a little more can be spent on gear boxes and some additional hardware, a mid-price range "economy" door with a lot of functionality can be created. Tons of people asked questions about this door design we put together for a farm in Virginia so we thought it would make sense to put a small slide show together showing it from more angles and giving some close-up shots of different components. We are toying around with making this door a standard offering in the near future, both as a part of our DIY Kits, and for those wanting to retrofit their own end-walls with a door package...not sure exactly when it would roll out, but stay tuned #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #marketgarden #marketgardening #greenhousegrowing #greenhousegrown #homestead #homesteading #farmstead #greenhousedoor #farmsmart #permaculture #virginiafarm #indianafarm #ohiofarm #pennsylvaniafarm #michiganfarm #fourseasonfarming #seasonextension #californiagrown #coloradofarm #minnesotafarm #wisconsinfarm #urbanfarm #microfarm #ruralfarm #tunnelvisionhoops

Shade cloth is one of those materials that can be secured a number of ways successfully. This customer got creative with some EZ Snap Hooks, snap-on grommets, and rope. Regardless of how it's installed, those baby veggies inside seemed pretty happy #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #shadehouse #shadecloth #smallfarm #ohiofarm #csafarm #fourseasonfarming #seasonextension #homestead #homesteading #californiafarm #coloradofarm #michiganfarm #virginiafarm #indianafarm #backyardgarden #microfarm #urbanfarm #selfsufficiency #tunnelvisionhoops

People are often surprised to learn we offer gothic style structures as small as 12.5 ft. wide. This picture here is our 14.5 ft wide gothic profile tunnel. It has large diameter bows, plenty of head room, and lots of surface area on the endwall's to allow for a person door and ventilation components. A lot of our pics display the larger structures, but we like to think we have something that could work for nearly every grower #hightunnel #hoophouse #seasonextension #marketfarm #marketfarming #marketgarden #marketgarden #homesteading #homestead #farmstead #farmsteading #permaculture #cannabiscultivation #backyardgardening #tunnelvisionhoops

Two of the three tunnels down in Cadiz, OH. Steel roll-up doors, insect screened sides, thermostatically controlled ventilation, double layer inflated poly, and more. Honestly, I'm jealous of what they'll be taking on in these #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #homestead #homesteading #farmstead #farmsteading #ruralfarm #smallfarming #urbanfarm #urbanagriculture #ohiofarm #virginiafarm #northcarolinafarm #permaculture #fourseasonfarming #seasonextension #cadizohio #csafarm #marketfarming #marketfarm #marketgarden #marketgardening #tunnelvisionhoops

Early morning spinach harvest. This bed was planted mid September (in the high tunnel) and did a fantastic job overwintering. It’s so sweet and tasty!

Our raised beds in the high tunnel are ready to plant! We will have dahlias, a variety of other flowers, geraniums, mixed greens, carrots, beets, and more. We are also doing something unique: keeping the center aisle open for lounge chairs, a dining table with custom-made benches, and twinkle lights for our Blue Door Farm Vacation Rental guests to use during their stay. Make a reservation! https://abnb.me/rLH934kjzK Enjoy your morning coffee here, or watch the sunset with local fruit & cheese and a glass from one of the Grand Valley’s breweries and wineries. Flower arranging workshops will also be available soon - watch for an update! Today we are digging for worms (Robin), for rocks in the water (Cooper), and cleaning out the ditch (Mark). Many thanks to Todd at @tunnelvisionhoops for our 56 x 26 foot gothic high tunnel! Love our farm.

We had the honor of being invited by @fourseasonfarm to build, spitball, and field fab a new mobile greenhouse design. Last week we started this process off by beginning the install at their beautiful farm. Here's a progress shot (more shots from our trip are to come)
