High Tunnel Storm Protection and Routine Maintenance

By Practical Farmers of Iowa


Following the derecho, many farmers were curious what more could be done to strengthen their high tunnels and keep tunnels in proper shape for weathering the weather.

During this farminar, Adam Montri draws from his experience building hundreds of high tunnels to share tips for building a strong tunnel, and routine tasks farmers should do to keep their tunnels performing as expected.

Adam Montri owns and operates Ten Hens Farm in Bath, Michigan. An expert in high tunnels, he has led seven high tunnel builds with PFI over the last decade, three of which occurred after the derecho in August 2020.
