The Boreal Farm

Established Grower


The Project

The Boreal Farm used grant funds to construct a 16 ft. x 100 ft. caterpillar tunnel to replace a high tunnel that collapsed under 30+ feet of snow during the Blue Blizzard of December 2022. This grant allowed The Boreal Farm to recover from this devastating snow event quickly and meet the requests of spring and fall CSA customers. The new tunnel is more resilient than its previous tunnel and will ensure minimal loss in yield for its upcoming growing season.

Environmental Impact

A caterpillar tunnel system prevents erosion, improves soil health, conserves water, and reduces tractor use.
