Moonstruck Farms is a small beginning farm here in the high desert...we are considered a market gardening operation, and one of few who applied for the Know your Farmer Know Your Food High Tunnel initiative last year, and a lucky one who was accepted. As soon as we have the other end of the greenhouse complete we will be calling for inspection and upon approval we will receive partial funding for the completed high tunnel or greenhouse...we will then complete a three year study.
The 3-year, 38-state study will verify if high tunnels are effective in reducing pesticide use (we only use OMRI approved substanced and only as a last resort), keeping vital nutrients in the soil, extending the growing season, increasing yields, and providing other benefits to growers.
So here goes...visit us on Facebook to see the photos!!
