Adam's Greenhouse and Produce in Covington, Ohio adds a 24 ft. x 96 ft. High Tunnel to Meet Local Demand
Our installation team had never been in Covington, Ohio before we had the pleasure of installing the 24 ft. wide High Tunnel purchased by Adam's Greenhouse. We had done some work around the area before, but never in the heart of the Ohio cities, Covington and Piqua. There was nothing but enjoyment on-site as we had the opportunity to enjoy the country, the home town feel, and even had a chance to take in Covington's finest locally operated eatery, Buffalo Jack's, which is famous for its local ownership as well as the stuffed bear that holds firm footing inside the pub / eatery. All lunch aside, the build at Adam's Greenhouse couldn't have gone better, and the operation itself seems poised to continue its growth.
We had the unique opportunity to work very closely with the livestock on the farm, as the chicken coop abutted the site of the High Tunnel. They were friendly enough though, and didn't get in the way. They may have pooped on a few things, but nothing that slowed us down. The objective while on-site was to install a 24 ft. x 96 ft. High Tunnel with electrically operated end-wall ventilation, a larger manually operated end-wall opening, and a personnel door at the front. The ultimate objective following the installation was to pack the tunnel with tomatoes to be sold at the retail store at the front of the property that sells produce and flowers throughout the year.
Here are some pictures from the installation:
