[Market-farming] A-Frame Trellis

I was discussing a trellis system that I farmer I know in New England  
used.  It was an A-frame style set up.

I've done a couple Google searches from time to time and have not  
really found anything that matches what he described to me.  I was  
wondering if anyone else has heard of these.  I own a sawmill so wood  
is free so this would be a great option.

 From the description it was simply a 2x4 A frame with 12' to 16'  
reinforced 2x4 top members that ran from frame to frame.  One on the  
top of the "A' and one resting across the cross member of the "A".

Make sense?

I think you could use this in a number of ways, but was curious if  
anyone else out there used something similar and their experiences.
