High Tunnels

The high tunnels occupy the area on our farm that used to be the dairy barn and cow yard. Just like then, this area is now the center and heart of the farm! 

Minnesota springs are often unkind and the high tunnels provide a warm and friendly environment to plants. The high tunnels allow us to extend the season greatly!
