Hi-Tunnel Season Extension
We now have a total of 300' x 34' of covered growing space at the farm. This is huge to extend the season in the spring and fall and also greatly increase our resiliency in unpredictable rain events. It also allows us to grow really high quality cucumbers and tomatoes and have them for a longer duration than would be typical in our area.
Post Harvest Area
We didn't quite get as far as we would have liked with the post-harvest area(before funds ran low). But even so, having an indoor space that we can heat will be huge this fall/winter when packing shares. This is an area in which we will continue to make progress this winter and next spring. Stay tuned.
Wow, Jeff tried a totally new growing system at the new land of 5' living lanes between each 500' single row of crops. We learned a lot this season and feel proud of what we've accomplished. It feels really good to transition 29 acres into organic bio-diverse agriculture. It has been incredible to see the land heal and life return. Also it has been amazing to bring people onto a piece of land that would have only seen large tractors for so long.
Seedling Greenhouse/Curing House
Now that we have the new greenhouse we cannot even imagine how we got by in an unheated space that was 1/10 the size.
