Vegetable and herb farms need cold-storage facilities to maintain quality for sales to restaurants and other markets requiring superior products. This project will investigate the feasibility and profitability of modifying springhouses with high-efficiency insulation and solar-powered fans to create a high-humidity cold storage facility with consistent conditions. Outreach will be through field days and articles.
