SLO Tribune: What’s up with those arches at the San Luis Ranch development? Here’s the answer:

If you’ve driven by the San Luis Ranch development in San Luis Obispo recently, you might have noticed a strange new addition — what looks like hundreds of arches popping up all across the farmland adjacent to the new construction.

So what’s going on?

Jacob Grossman, operations manager for SLO Ranch Farms and Marketplace, said the arches are actually what is known as hoop houses, and they’re meant to help sustainably grow the blueberries currently being planted on the property.

Grossman said Central Coast Organic Berries is planting roughly 30 acres of organic blueberries that will ultimately be sold wholesale. The berries will also “be featured in our SLO Ranch Gourmet Market in the commercial center,” Grossman said.
