“Shopping for the right greenhouse was as important to me as purchasing a vacation home, especially since I knew how much time I’d be spending in it. After checking with several companies, I consulted with a sales rep at FarmTek and felt confident that he could help me make the right choice for my family’s new greenhouse.”

2012 Photo Contest Runners-Up
“So far the greenhouse has pushed our season by far more than a month and we have harvested the biggest and best chard and lettuce ever. The tomatoes are huge for this time of year and setting fruit heavily, the peppers are looking great and we have harvested basil twice already!”

Premium Round Style High Tunnel
“After my seeds sprouted this spring, I moved the flats to the greenhouse where they grew quickly and adapted well to being transplanted into the garden. This summer, we rolled up the sides, opened up the ends and I am growing tomatoes, squash, peppers, basil and sweet potatoes in the high tunnel.”

Pro Solar Star™ High Tunnel
“Last year, we purchased a 30′ x 96′ Pro Solar Star™ High Tunnel from FarmTek. We decided to ‘harvest’ more than just vegetable crops from the tunnel and prevent erosion by collecting rainfall flowing off the tunnel.”

Backyard Pro Greenhouse II
“I love my 12′ x 24′ greenhouse from FarmTek because it houses over 100 banana trees and lots of other tropical flowers throughout the winter. This product is as good today as the day I installed it.”

“The calves love it.”

Daddy Long Legs Canopy
“Just wanted to thank all at FarmTek for their great customer service and great products for our business. After Hurricane Katrina we bought our first fabric structure as a temporary facility and it is still going strong. (I guess it is no longer temporary.) We have since bought several more buildings and plan on buying more to ease future growing pains.”

Elite Home-Attached Greenhouse
“We were able to grow all of our own flower and vegetable starts this year for our garden. The big pots in the greenhouse will yield the early cucumbers and tomatoes which are slow to appear outside in the highlands of northern Idaho. In sum, I couldn’t be more pleased with my ‘new’ greenhouse!”

“I have a 38′ x 40′ ClearSpan building that I use as a small arena for training and starting my ponies under saddle. The building is bright and airy and allows me to work with the ponies even when the sun is beating down or it’s raining.”

Hercules Truss Arch Building
“The construction was a breeze with good instructions and perfect fits. The site experiences high winds in the winter and as much as 100 inches of rain and this structure has not failed to keep the team totally satisfied.”

Pony Wall Building
“We absolutely love our FarmTek hoop building! We decided to put our hoop building on an existing cement structure from a former hog confinement building. Our building is 32′ x 84′ and resides on our dairy farm. We utilize this structure for storage of corn stalk and hay bales and some equipment storage.”
