High tunnels expand production opportunities in highly erodible landscapes

When James Burch took over the family farm in Mississippi after four decades in the Army, he wanted to continue his great-grandfather’s legacy and provide food to the surrounding rural communities, where food access is limited. With the help of high tunnels and a vision, he is bringing life back to the family farm. High tunnels can extend the growing season, improve plant and soil quality, and provide better pest control, among other conservation benefits.
