Movable high tunnels are the newest progression in extending the growing season for vegetables. They allow for diverse crop rotations, inclusion of perennial crops, and easier use of cover crops.

With this booklet, learn growers’ responses to a survey of their experiences with high tunnels, regarding purchase, construction, crop choices, production, and revenue.

Challenges as well as advantages of using high tunnels are addressed, and a photo diary depicts a year of production under high tunnels. Print and Internet resources along with high tunnel vendors are listed.
