If you’ve ever enjoyed a product from Tierra Vegetables—a spicy jar of jam, a glorious chili powder, flavorful hot sauce, or enormous squash, it was probably born here in this warm, bright and innovative greenhouse. As part of their thirtieth anniversary celebration and as a kind of greenhouse-warming celebration of the new structure on the farm, Tierra held an open house on one of their satellite properties (Lee’s place).
The Tierra Vegetables greenhouse features excellent homebrew efficiencies like a rainwater collection system that is used to conserve water while keeping the greenhouse warm through the night, and rolling tables that maximize space. After the greenhouse, see the smoker, which has been in use for over twenty years. Featuring a cast of characters including brother and sister farmers Lee and Wayne James, greenhouse builder Montana Hartley, an Evie sighting, the dogs, Tierra customers, the Shetland sheep, a toad, a lizard, hummingbirds… etc. Music by Brightblack Morning Light.
