Many horse owners are taking farm life a step further with the addition of traditional homestead activities like chickenkeeping and growing their own vegetables. While Horizon Structures has long been known for its vast array of chicken coops that include every conceivable design and size, the latest trend in eco-friendly homegrown produce also warranted some support.
“With our base in Lancaster County, PA and our strong Amish roots, raising crops and producing healthy fruits and vegetables on the homestead for family and neighbors has long been a traditional way of life. It is great to see more people embracing the benefits of cultivating their own food. The growing season is never long enough and the challenges with weather variances, pesky bugs and wildlife require careful management. Horizon Structures is pleased to offer a new line of greenhouses to help support the amateur gardeners’ efforts,” explained Horizon Structures owner, Dave Zook.
All greenhouses are not created equal, and there are lots of options when it comes to style and function. Horizon Structures’ greenhouses offer siding made of resilient heavy-duty 8mm twin wall polycarbonate that is neatly sandwiched between Versitex® trim. The sandwich ‘twin’ layer offers improved insulation for both hot and cold weather over fragile glass or plastic. For horse owners the noise free siding (unlike plastic which can flap during high wind) and the absence of a glass hazard on a horse farm makes sense.
The addition of a thermostatically controlled fan keeps the interior temperature moderated during hot weather. The stylish traditional design provides a pleasing aesthetic and with a range of sizes on offer there is something for every budget.
“For parents a greenhouse offers a unique opportunity to teach their kids all about food production. Kids love to participate and reap the rewards of what they literally sow. There truly is nothing better than the taste of a fruit or vegetable you have grown yourself. Equestrians love to stay healthy, and with the minimal carbon footprint that home food production ensures, everyone is doing a bit to help the environment. When you know where your food comes from and what’s in it, you can rest assured it’s of good quality,” said Horizon’s Chief Marketing Officer, Jill Siragusa.
When it comes to keeping the kids occupied, the greenhouse and gardening can be a delightful distraction and positive learning experience. But kids also love to play. Horizon Structures supports the entire family with their product line of wood and vinyl playsets, that help develop key coordination skills, reduce stress and help develop their imaginations plus a myriad of outdoor living structures to keep the parents and grandparents out of the sun with a place to gather and enjoy quality time.
Horse barns are certainly what Horizon Structures are known for, and their latest timber frame line has seen a huge welcome from the horse community. But the wide range of buildings offered encompasses a bevy of options that all include their usual prompt and efficient set up and delivery and top quality customer service. Choose from gazebos for outdoor arenas, cabanas for poolside comfort and kennels for canine caregivers.
