Standard tomatoes are grown profitably in high polytunnels, and the farmer will explore whether specialty and cherry tomatoes can be grown the same way. These tomatoes will be sold primarily at the local farmers’ market, and the data collected on yield, harvest time, packaging time, price per unit, and other market factors will be used to determine what the economic advantages and disadvantages are.
