Blue Gate Farm High Tunnels: Take 3

Published Feb 9, 2011


Jill Beebout and Sean Skeehan of Blue Gate Farm produce crops in the field as well as in two high tunnels. This report summarizes their production and sales data from their two high tunnels in spring and summer 2010. Fall 2008, spring and summer 2009 data is available at the web link on the left. Jill and Sean have recorded multi year data to create strong documentation for their high tunnel production and profit potential.

Blue Gate Farm generated significant profit from their high tunnels, and the structures were integral for their CSA and farmer’s market sales in 2010 when their outdoor crops performed poorly due to adverse weather conditions.

This multi year project has re-enforced for Jill and Sean how beneficial accurate and easily accessible recordkeeping is for their farm.
