Nifty Hoops pays attention to what you need to grow. Our structures as designed to help you produce food affordably for market. Through our experience working closely with four-season growers, we design to maximize important features while minimizing cost. We treat each structure as a system, not just a collection of interchangeable parts.
- We focus on our regional growers and pay attention to the features most valuable for diversified vegetable production and seek to provide the best cost/value structure on the market.
- We professionally install everything we manufacture. Imagine having a completed structure in one day for less than the material cost from many other producers.
30′ Gothic hoophouse structures
Nifty Hoops produces a 30‘ wide gothic structure that can be built from 48‘ to 192‘ in length.
- Strong: Triple gusseted cross-braces span every interior bow and stretch 22‘ across the 30‘ structure. While creating a strong house for our northern climates, these braces also integrate with our plant trellising system, creating a quick and easy way to train tomatoes, cucumbers and other vining crops.
- Rugged: our Gatorshield galvanized tubing and strong woven poly endwall and rollup panels are built to last
- Grower-friendly: Mid-wall height provides complete perimeter walk area and easy access to the complete growing footprint.
- Accessible: our end-wall design incorporates hinged doors for daily entry and (4) large equipment panels that give you cost effective, and easily-winterized doorways.
- Full-featured: Our structure includes all of the elements you need to produce 12 months of the year including baseboards, roll-up sides, automated end-wall ventilation, a double layer/inflated poly cover and equipment and hinged doorways.
14′ SideStep mobile/modular hoophouse structures
Our newest design is a 14′ wide “caterpillar tunnel” that combines affordability with easy mobility. This hoophouse can be built as a stand-alone stationary structure, complete with doors and roll up sides. But the real value of the SideStep hoophouse comes alive with the mobile/modular system, stepping sideways in 16′ length sections onto multiple sets of ground posts.
- Affordable: The SideStep hoophouse can be installed for roughly half the cost of Gothic hoophouses, while adding valuable mobility.
- New valuable features: every structure includes groundcloth weed barrier and poly baseboards
- Hyper-mobile: 2 people can relocate 2,000 sf of hoophouse in 1 hour, allowing new sophisticated rotations to maximize value
- Is functionally half the width of our 30′ Gothic structure: 14′ width still allows (4) 30″ beds with generous pathways
- Buttons up in the winter: Wire-lock channel in the baseboards let’s you secure the poly cover in wind and harsh weather conditions
- Ready for your growing needs: optional cross braces for heavy snow load installation areas
