Wood Pellet Furnace and Boiler for Heating Greenhouses
Tuesday, April 17, 2012 from 3-6 p.m.
River Berry Farm, Fairfax

David Marchant and Jane Sorenson own River Berry Farm, a highly 
diversified vegetable, strawberry and ornamental operation. In addition 
to about 35 acres of crops they have 7 greenhouses for production of 
bedding plants, field transplants and greenhouse tomatoes. They have 
been exploring wood pellet systems for reducing their reliance on 
propane to heat the greenhouses. In 2008, an LDJ Amaizing Heat corn 
furnace was installed in a 3,000 sq ft greenhouse; it has been run on 
wood pellets for several years.

This year they purchased a Maxim outdoor wood pellet boiler with about 
twice the Btu output, to heat 2 greenhouses totaling 4,000 sq. ft. They 
will describe their greenhouse production systems in general and discuss 
the performance of both heating units, as well as the management 
considerations and economics of heating with pellets. The farm also 
features a heat recovery system that captures waste heat from the 
walk-in-cooler compressor to provide hot water on the farm, and a 
low-cost hot-water bench-heating system to reduce fuel demand in the 
transplant greenhouse.

Directions. From the west: Follow Rt. 104 out of Fairfax Center. The 
Lamoille River parallels Rt. 104 on your left. Just after the dam turn 
left and cross the bridge. (It is a one lane bridge so, if there is 
someone coming towards you, wait until the bridge is clear to pass 
over.) Turn right on Goose Pond Rd. River Berry Farm is on the right 
about  of a mile from the bridge.

 From the east: Follow Rt. 104 out of Cambridge. The Lamoille River 
parallels Rte. 104 on your right. Just after the dam turn right and 
cross the bridge. (It is a one lane bridge so, if there is someone 
coming towards you, wait until the bridge is clear to pass over.) Turn 
right on Goose Pond Rd. River Berry Farm is on the right about  of a 
mile from the bridge.

The physical address is 191 Goose Pond Rd., Fairfax if you want to get 
map directions.
