TxBeeFarmer, try using a nitrogen shipping container. Port of Houston
probably has many for sale. I bought one several years back and love it.
It's 20 feet by 7 feet by 7 feet high. Insulation is four inches thick and
it is possible to run lines in for the evaporation unit of a compressor very
easily. They are made for all weather and will last forever. Hope this

Thank you all for the very informative discussions. I've decided to invest
in a walk-in cooler and some sort of hydrocooling system - Hopefully, I can
use the walk-in's cooling system for the hydrocooling too.
Now for a little more help please. Where can I purchase a good walkin
that'll stand up to the constant loading and unloading of produce AND being
outside - hot sun, high winds, sand storms, hale, etc...? Or, do I need to
build a building or shed for the walk-in?
