“I am so glad to find a book with well-structured material supported through years of experience and research to fully address high tunnel construction and production. A welcome and needed addition to agricultural literature, this book delivers the information farmers and gardeners need.”—Gena Moore, Carolina Farm Stewardship Association.

“Things once looked dire for family farms in Montgomery Country. A variety of factors over the years contributed to a loss of more than 70% of the farmland—but happily, it wasn’t too late. In 1980, a group set aside a 93,000-acre expanse in the northwest crescent as a reserve. Kousoulas and Letourneau have created a glorious tribute to the farmers, past and present, who have made this region such an integral and productive part of our local food chain.”—HillRag
