Tim Hughes

Parking, Irrigation, Storage Building & Plasticulture Improvements – Grant Award: $6,000

Tim has 4.5 acres of U-Pick berries, greasy beans and corn, which he established in 1986.

With his award, he will expand and improve the parking area for drive-in customers, make raised beds for plasticulture, install a catch-basin in a creek to provide irrigation water and construct a storage building on a concrete slab for material storage.

The expected outcomes: substantially increased yield and customer base due to improved access to his farm.
