CT Greenhouse is an NRCS High Tunnel Approved Vendor

Imagine extending your growing season, maintaining more control over your growing environment, and maximizing the productivity and profitability of your farmland. You can make this a reality by taking advantage of the USDA's National Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) high tunnel program! Through this program, NRCS provides funding to farmers to cover the costs of greenhouse frames for growing in the ground, allowing farmers across the country to continue growing high-quality produce for a longer season.

Through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP)


NRCS funding is targeted to cover up to 90% of the cost of a high tunnel project.

This makes high tunnels affordable for small and mid-sized growers who want to take their production to the next level.

NRCS high tunnel standards ensure the high tunnels meet strict quality and safety guidelines.

NRCS High Tunnel


How much will NRCS pay for a high tunnel?

Rates are a flat rate per square foot, regardless of what you pay for the tunnel. The larger the structure, the lower the per-square-foot cost, so you may actually pay less out of pocket for 
a larger tunnel!

I have an NRCS high tunnel grant. Will your frame meet their requirements?

Yes! Every state has their own guidelines, but our structures have been approved in every state where they have been reviewed. We (Toby and Aaron) have worked on both sides of this process, building NRCS tunnels on our own farms as well, so we can help you navigate the system and provide any information your agent may need to approve your structure.

What are the rules for NRCS high tunnels?

These will vary by state but most commonly you will need a conservation plan, currently cropped land, and a farm and tract number from the Farm Service Agency. The actual specs for the frame will vary by state so check with your NRCS agent to confirm details.


Questions About Acquiring an NRCS Grant?



Easy. Fast. Intuitive.

Since we started out as farmers and then greenhouse builders ourselves, we have worked hard to make sure that our frames are easy, fast, and intuitive to assemble.

You will get an extensive instruction manual along with your purchase, and you can call, email, or text us any day of the week for advice along the way

Depending on the size of your project and the options you choose, you should budget 1-3 weeks for construction. The key to a fast build is to ask lots of questions during the quoting and planning stages.

If you need help with construction, in many areas we can recommend independent builders who know our products and can give you a quote for assembly.
