Visit Us & See For Yourself
We are located 26 miles west of Dubuque, IA on US Highway 20. If you are in the area or are making plans to attend a workshop, this is the best address to use for your GPS:
Are you interested in seeing everything that our Technology Center has to offer, but canít make it to a workshop? Stop by for a tour. We hold tours at our Iowa campus every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10 am and 2 pm CST. We look forward to showing you around our greenhouse!
In our high-tech greenhouse, we demonstrate hydroponic systems, proper greenhouse plumbing and more.
We've designed and constructed two greenhouse facilities. One is a 35' by 48' structure, which is split into two demonstration areas. In one half, we are modeling year-round, in-ground high tunnel production. The other half has three different hydroponic systems. Our 80' by 50' greenhouse is devoted solely to hydroponic production.
Tour our manufacturing facilities and see how we custom manufacture our ClearSpan structures and greenhouses in our own Hercules Truss Arch Building. With state-of-the-art equipment, such as robotic welding which ensures extreme precision in the manufacturing of our buildings' frames, our buildings are built to the highest standards.

Learn More About Us!
When you visit our Iowa campus, you'll have the opportunity to learn more about Growers Supply and the things we do best. Some of the topics that are most important to us include:
|The advantages of hydroponic growing
With hydroponic, or soilless, growing you can achieve larger, higher quality crops due to controlled nutrient ratios and high yields in minimal growing space. A major benefit of hydroponic systems is that they can be used in areas where soil-based cultivation isn't possible, such as locations with poor soil quality, or where water supplies are limited.
|The benefits of tension fabric structures
Fabric structures are affordable for you, with low costs per square foot, little or no property taxes and energy-saving benefits. Abundant natural light limits the need for daytime artificial lighting. Temperature-stabilizing fabric covers reduce the need for heating and cooling systems. When you choose a ClearSpan Fabric Structure, you can have your structure installed in only a matter of weeks. ClearSpan structures take as little as three weeks to produce and as little as three to five days to install.
|The value of local agriculture
Locally grown and sustainability go hand in hand. Growing your own or purchasing from a local farm or farmers' market ensures a reduction in fossil fuel use, more nutritious, better tasting and fresher produce, and many additional environmental benefits.
