I've posted this over on the Homestead board too, but there seems to be a somewhat different crowd over here, and I thought you might like to know about it...

This is a DVD put out by the University of Vermont Center for Sustainable Agriculture. It's a great overview of various types of farming under high tunnels: cut flower, orchard, and CSA. Farmers interviewed are in CT, VT, NY, and PA. It has both multi-bay operations and multiple single bay set-ups. Benefits and drawbacks, temperature regulation are briefly covered... as I say, it's an overview. It's wonderfully inspiring to see how much, and what can be grown under plastic.

I'd strongly recommend it for someone just getting interested in high tunnels...
