Altman Plants in Peyton, CO

“Hi, my name is Harry Vlottes, and I’m the Operations Manager for Altman Plants in Peyton, Colorado. Altman Plants in Peyton, Colorado owns over 400 acres of land with currently 32 acres or 1.4 million square feet of greenhouse. The greenhouse is a state-of-the-art greenhouse with tempered glass. Automated conveyer belts take the plants from the production barn to the greenhouse where the product is then put on cable conveyer belts into the greenhouse grow room area. We use the automated irrigation booms to water, mist, and/or fertilize the crops. The basket echo system can hold over 165,000 hanging baskets of different sizes. The climate is controlled by computer to ensure the optimum temperature inside the greenhouse. To cool the greenhouse when it is too warm, the open roof ventilation system gives the plants the same environment as they would have at our customers home. On cold days, the closed-loop hot water system heats the greenhouse to the desired temperatures. For crops that need shade, the greenhouse has an automated shading curtain system that opens and closes depending on the outside sunlight.”
