High Tunnel

Location: Crystal Organic Farm

The USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service can help farmers utilize the many benefits of high tunnels including conservation practices such as drip irrigation and cover cropping.

With High Tunnels, farmers can grow crops earlier in the spring and later into the winter months… and sometimes, year round! Farmers can provide their communities with more diverse local crops, reducing energy and transportation costs and providing their communities with greater food security.
