Bittersweet Farms in Whitehouse, Ohio adds a 24 ft. x 48 ft. High Tunnel Hoop House to Their Farm

Posted by Todd Alexander on

We have done installation work for Bittersweet Farms in Whitehouse, OH on a number of occasions, and this most recent trip to the Toledo suburb...or sub-suburb as it should more appropriately be labelled, saw us build the third Tunnel Vision Hoops High Tunnel Hoop House for their group, and the second of an identical size. Before getting to much into the structure and the build, here is the mission of Bittersweet Farms: "The mission of Bittersweet, Inc. is to positively impact the lives of individuals with autism and those whose lives they touch." 

With this mission in mind, we feel that the High Tunnels we build are being used within a larger farm program provided at the farm that can hopefully help execute the mission of the farm. Always love working with organizations that are mission driven such as Whitehouse...really impressive work they are doing on the farm there. 

The 24 ft. wide x 48 ft. wide structure is the second one of that size we have built for the farm in three years, with the main difference between this most recent structure and the first one we built being that the first one we built didn't have such giant doors as a part of it. 

We were lucky enough to have some great weather when in Whitehouse, and even though we had to load and travel that morning, we were able to install the structure as well as the two doors in a day and half. The doors, are 4 ft. x 8 ft. double sliding doors; they end up creating a larger opening of 7 ft. 4 inches wide by 7 ft. 11 inches tall. This is the widest model of sliding door that we offer. Maybe that is why we seem to be getting a great number of customers beginning to request this model over our other door options. 

The tunnel we built here, like all other TVH Standard DIY Kits in this width, comes standard with Trusses and Truss Supports on all interior hoops, five purlins, metal end-wall framing, aluminum shutters with solar wax tube operators on each end-wall, and full length roll-up sides. 

Hopefully we will be asked to come back to Bittersweet farms in the very near future to do some more work on such a great farm. Below are some pictures of the finished structure:
