Want to offer fruit trees, veggie & herb plants, or ornamentals? Add a greenhouse!

by VersaTube Marketing on July 15, 2019

The demand for unprocessed, fresh, organic food is growing. From restaurants who love offering locally grown ingredients to the average grocery store shopper, so many of us are interested in both the health and the ecological benefits of locally-grown, fresh food. With demand so high, many businesses could benefit from expanding to include a greenhouse, which could allow you to offer fresh produce, herbs, and plants for a longer time frame, or even year round.

Think a greenhouse is a bigger expense than you want to take on right now? You might be pleasantly surprised at how budget-friendly a greenhouse made with a VersaTube steel frame could be!

Plus, VersaTube buildings are engineered to be simple to assemble. Picture the grown-up version of the Erector Set™ you might have played with as a kid and you’ll have a good idea how fun and simple it is to build a VersaTube! Made with American-made steel, our buildings go together using our unique Slip-Fit Connections that a couple of people can assemble in a short amount of time using just basic household tools.

Once you’ve assembled the VersaTube frame, you can finish it in whatever greenhouse style works for your budget and needs.

So, what type of business would benefit from adding on a greenhouse? So many small and medium-sized businesses! Do you fit any of these criteria?

  • I’d like to offer fresh, locally-grown vegetables year round

  • It’d be nice to start selling local garden vegetables earlier in the year

  • I’d love to sell locally-grown and/or organic produce, plants, trees, and herbs

  • Harsh weather makes it challenging to sell locally-grown plants and produce as much as I’d like to

  • I could see my business as a resource for local chefs to find fresh, locally-grown ingredients

  • Later than usual freezing temperatures have damaged my inventory of spring plants in the past

Those are just a few reasons that a greenhouse could be a vital addition to your company, and you can probably think of more. The trend is, and it shows every sign of continuing, that consumers value locally-grown plants and ingredients, and more and more they dislike imported produce that has been harvested early and traveled hundreds of miles or more.

If you can see your business benefiting from being able to sell locally-grown ingredients year round, thanks to a greenhouse, choose to build it with a VersaTube frame! Pick from one of our standard shed or garage models, or pick a custom size with our Design-Your-Own Tool!
