High Tunnels Growing in a high tunnel, or hoop house, provides an easy and cost-effective way to establish greater control over your growing environment and extend your growing season. Ideal for vegetables, small fruit, cut flowers and more, these structures will enhance your crop yield, quality and profitability by up to 50%.
Hoop Houses: A Smaller, More Nimble High Tunnel. Often associated with backyard gardens and small-scale farms, hoop houses are actually simply a smaller sized high tunnel designed to maximize simplicity while preserving so many of the benefits offered by a high tunnel or greenhouse. Small Enough To Fit Just About Anywhere
WASHINGTON, Dec. 16, 2009 - Agriculture Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan today announced a new pilot project under the 'Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food' initiative for farmers to establish high tunnels - also known as hoop houses - to increase the availability of locally grown produce in a conservation-friendly way.

In 2010, the USDA's National Resource Conservation Service started a program called the High Tunnel Initiative that offers grants to agricultural producers who use high tunnels to grow fruits and vegetables. This program aims to encourage growers to produce sustainable agricultural products and provide citizens with quality, locally-grown food.
