RJ's MidAmerica has been in business for over 35 years.
Owners Randy and Jill have maintained a number of successful businesses.
A few of years ago, family, friends, and others expressed concerns
about healthy food and also it's availability.
RJ's decided to take on the challenge to provide a way for everyone to have access to safe, good food they can grow year round. Using their engineering and
medical/nutritional backgrounds, and business
experience to help others, the Complete Greenhouse was developed.
Production, ease of use, and cost were a priority.
There were plenty of kits, plans, and un-tested ideas out there.
Many of which were just a waste of time and money.
Commercial growing had very high costs involved.
The aquaponics "kits" were way too expensive.
The hobby greenhouses were too small, fell apart,
and frankly were no fun at all to assemble.,
We decided to start from the beginning using all that we learned from
hands on, practical experience.
Some things worked and some, well - there are many out there just after a profit etc.
We found what was "over kill", what was exaggeration, and what was true and worked.
We have raised Tilapia from the start and continue today so there is a local supply.
We have tested various greenhouse sizes for production as well as climate control.
We have grown a number of different plants to see what
really grows well in a greenhouse environment
... and much more..
5 years later...
The Need: Affordable healthy food forever (or for as long as we are here)
The Plan: Build the perfect family sized greenhouse at the lowest cost possible
The Process: Extensive research, experimentation, price shopping, engineering, efficiency
Conclusion: Internet info/manuals not always reliable or truthful - a lot of hands on "myth busting"
The Result: Near perfect greenhouse at a very affordable price with low maintenance
Happy Growing, and most of all, have fun.
Oh yes, the picture is a 4 year old Hatch green chili plant! No need to wait for every fall. Year round harvest.
