Our facility focuses on economically profitable, year round diversified crop production by incorporating agroecological practices into Kentucky high tunnel systems. This includes the integration of both traditional high-value crops (i.e. tomatoes) and other highly marketable local produce (i.e. leafy greens, legumes, etc.). The facility is coming to the end of its preliminary establishment, and we are excited to proceed with the important research so many high tunnel growers want.
