Abstract

Ralph Turner of Laughing Stock Farm in Freeport is one of many Maine farmers who are extending the growing season and their income through the use of greenhouses and hoophouses. The movement towards winter growing was pioneered by Maine’s own Eliot Coleman, and has recently taken off thanks, in part, to federal grants administered through the Natural Resources Conservation Service designed to encourage the use of hoophouses in order to measure their impact on soil health
