We presently operate Doef’s Greenhouses Ltd on a a “state of the art” 11 acre greenhouse about 6 miles west and 3 ½ miles north of Lacombe – on the south east side of Gull Lake. Our experienced structures are covered with a double layer of poly while the new structure is covered with state of the art diffused glass. The greenhouse is heated with natural gas burning hot water boilers. The flue gas from our boiler stacks (pure CO2) is pumped back into our crops on demand when our CO2 levels get too low.
Our plants love CO2! Efforts are always being made to conserve energy because of the high energy input costs. Shade or Energy curtains are installed that can be automatically pulled over the crop in the evenings and on very cold, cloudy winter days to conserve heat. 9 of our 11 acres are using HPS lighting which give us an advantage to grow fresh, local produce in the middle of our cold Alberta winters!
