Utah Greenhouse Project Update


Hello Mona, Utah!

This past week the excitement of planning a project such as Houweling’s Tomatoes sustainable greenhouse farm in Utah, got put into high gear as we are now under construction! As you can see from the pictures included, crews have begun the process of levelling the land where our 28.3 acre greenhouse will be built through the summer.

If you aren’t familiar with the project, let me bring you up to speed. Houweling’s operations have been referred to as “The Future of Farming” before and this project only strengthens that reputation. Just about 75 miles south of Salt Lake City, we are building a greenhouse next to an existing natural gas power plant. Why is this significant? Well two of the most important inputs for year-round growing are heat and CO2. Both of these happen to be waste products off the stacks of the power plant. By building next to the plant and thanks to the Kubo built and Houweling’s patented Ultra Clima greenhouse system, we are able to take the wasted heat and CO2 from the power plant and divert them directly into the greenhouse. This combined with supplemental lighting will deliver fresh, tasty tomatoes 365 days a year!

While site preparations have begun, as to have our efforts to find men and women who to take on various roles within our Utah company from construction, to maintenance, growing, labour, crop management, administration and more. If you are interested in joining our team, email your resume and indicate what sort of role you would like to be considered for to resumes@houwelings.com or visit the Work With Us page on our website under the “Contact Us” heading.

I hope you enjoy the photos and check back regularly as we will have more updates along the way as we move towards planting our first crop.

With my regards,

Houweling's Tomatoes
