Marty Gray is the co-owner of Gray Farms Produce in Watseka, IL. We interviewed him on an icy day in February 2015, just as his protected crops were beginning to put on new growth with the lengthening days. Marty took us through his high tunnels and indicated the many pieces of equipment and infrastructure that must come together along with good timing and planning to make high tunnel production work. He also discussed his many crop choices, showed us some of his crop storage solutions, and explained how he has overcome the many challenges of intense winds. Finally, he discussed how season extension has been an intrinsic part of his business from the beginning, how he would like to do more winter farming so that he can guarantee employment for his loyal team, and how he markets his crops through winter markets and online ordering.
