Pleasant View Gardens Expands Production SpaceSource: Pleasant View Gardens

Pleasant View Gardens has added more than 30,000 square feet of production space and upgraded existing greenhouses to their Loudon, New Hampshire location.

Pleasant View Gardens has added more than 30,000 square feet of production space and upgraded existing greenhouses to their Loudon, New Hampshire location. “The main advantage will be better light levels for earlier crops and being able to bring finished product to market earlier,” says Henry Huntington, president. “We’re continuing to improve our efficiency and upgrade growing facilities—our focus on quality demands better environments.” The project replaced older double poly hoop houses heated by oil with new greenhouses that will be heated by the operation’s energy-saving biomass boiler system, which burns wood chips. The naturally ventilated houses are also designed to provide maximum light. Labor efficiency was also a key part of the project: The old houses were separated and required going outside from one house to the next. The new construction, connects and encloses single atrium glasshouses. “The new greenhouse space allows us to have greater control over additional environments, creating more opportunity for new crops,” said Huntington. With the expansion, the production space totals 14 acres.
