This structure is 20 ft. x 72 ft. It is set up with 8mm twin wall polycarb end-walls, thermostatically controlled forced ventilation, a heater, and an inflated double layer covering (...soon to be inflated since electrical is just getting run now). The customer will be putting benches in there shortly as well #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #urbanagriculture #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #urbanag #michiganfarm #ohiofarm #virginiafarm #iowafarm #indianafarm #nrcs #oeffa #nmsfc #acresusa #permaculture #seasonextension #farmcapacity #farmproductivity #profitablefarming #selfsufficiency #survivalist #microfarm #microfarming #smallfarm #smallfarming #tunnelvisionhoops

It's that time of year again. If you have a tunnel, and even if you don't, this scene is likely very familiar. Frost blanket does a great job keeping the earths stored temperatures close to your plants. We are a distributor of the DeWitt brand frost blanket, so if anyone needs some extra blanket, don't hesitate to shoot us a line. Stay warm out there! #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #urbanagriculture #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #urbanag #michiganfarm #ohiofarm #virginiafarm #iowafarm #indianafarm #nrcs #oeffa #nmsfc #acresusa #permaculture #seasonextension #farmcapacity #farmproductivity #profitablefarming #selfsufficiency #survivalist #microfarm #microfarming #smallfarm #smallfarming #tunnelvisionhoops

What lettuce can look like in an unheated high tunnel. Frost blanket (seen to the left of the row) is laid over top the lettuce on the EMT mini-hoops in the evenings, and it goes a long way to keep radiant ground heat close to the plants. If you haven't used frost blanket, and are trying to grow through the cold months, I would highly recommend giving it a try #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #urbanagriculture #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #urbanag #michiganfarm #ohiofarm #virginiafarm #iowafarm #indianafarm #nrcs #oeffa #nmsfc #acresusa #permaculture #seasonextension #farmcapacity #farmproductivity #profitablefarming #selfsufficiency #survivalist #microfarm #microfarming #smallfarm #smallfarming #tunnelvisionhoops

30x72 with a big door, insect screened sides, and peak fan...Beneficial wasps will be used for organic pest control in this tunnel, which is the primary reason for the insect netting on the sides. When the wasps are released the big door will remain shut, or will also be screened off until all harmful pest insects have been taken care of #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #ohiofarm #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #nrcs #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #michiganfarm #indianafarm #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Red Kitten wins the honor of being my favorite variety of spinach to grow! I can’t get enough of those beautiful red veins. You can get your hands on some this week at the DUG FarmStand or at @cheesebardsm.

We love farms...and growing...and plants...and the weight and meaning those things have to the world at large. Keep growing, keep farming, keep finding your hands in the earth, and keep believing that what you are doing is making a difference, and we will keep putting our blood, sweat, and tears toward supporting you #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #thefutureisfarming #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

This 30 ft. wide tunnel has a lot of carrots outside, and a lot of carrots inside too. This will ensure a continual harvest of green topped carrots right through the coldest months of this year and into the next. Planting carrots in your high tunnels while day length is still long will help them get a good jump on the late season lack of sun that we start to experience in the fall. This "lead time" on planting in high tunnels is important to consider since everything takes longer to grow when there is less daylight every single day. This goes for all veggies being grown for a winter harvest, not just carrots #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #216 #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Had to include another angle showing these six round top tunnels. They are just feet from Cleveland's Westside Market. If you are ever in the Cleveland, Ohio area check out the Westside Market and be sure to walk through the six acre Ohio City Farm. Each of these tunnels are 20'x48' and they are six of the eleven tunnels at the farm #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #nrcs #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #ohiocity #cleveland #216 #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

Crisp nights have been creeping up on us, but the sun has been shining, which is very good for passive heat gain in the high tunnels. Temperatures are going to keep falling, but hopefully as the cooler weather establishes itself all the growers out there will be able to establish a good regimen for keeping the daily heat gain through the coldest parts of the night #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops

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

Side door greenhouse entrances are coming back in a big way...Well, in some instances at least. If your structure has end-walls that completely roll up and down, or if you have a mobile tunnel, side door entrances could be a functional entrance option to keep the end-wall surface area freed up for ventilation, or structure mobility #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #mobilegreenhouse #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #homesteading #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

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.
