In Spring of 2015, the Tunnel Vision Hoops crew had the opportunity to head out east to build a tunnel for a great farm: Great Road Farm. Yes, pun was intended. This gem of a farm is located just north of Princeton University, and is made of over 100 acres of beautiful farm land that has been split up into specialty crop production (regular delicious vegetables and fruits), egg and chicken production, perennial edibles, and more projects than I could truly capture in the space I have available to me in this posting.

Any project we are hired to do by a previous customer is a job that makes us feel warm inside. We are very grateful for any customer, but repeat customers give us some form of physical proof that we did a great job the first time. When we were called by Gray Fox Farm in the late winter to come out to their farm to get a small "Start House" built we were excited to get out there.  more about Gray Fox Farm - A Second Tunnel »

In the Spring of 2013 we had the unique opportunity to head West and do a project far from our headquarters in Northeast Ohio. We were contacted by a couple of Ranchers in the great State of Wyoming to get them some pricing on a 20 ft. Wide x 48 ft. Long Gothic Farm Tunnel. We gave them pricing for both a DIY Kit and a fully installed system by our crew. The Ranchers had approached our company as well as a few other greenhouse suppliers to provide them with pricing, but it turns out that most others didn't want to make the trip install a single tunnel. more about R and G Anderson Ranch - Wyoming »
