Improving Taste, Size, and Freshness
By helping protect crops from weather-related damage, such as sun scald, wind bruises, and hail spots, high tunnels provide a higher percentage of top-grade fruits and vegetables.  This decreases the amount of culling required and makes the farm more profitable.

The plastic barrier eliminates rain, hail, and wind damage and protects the plants from weather extremes.  Sudden and dramatic swings in outside temperature are moderated by the solar thermal system.  The barrier, combined with the in-line drip irrigation, also significantly cuts down on pest damage.

Fruits and vegetables in high tunnels demonstrate less deformity because the growing environment is so tightly controlled. The end result is larger, sweeter, tastier fruits and vegetables that fetch higher market prices compared to field grown produce.
