    Muscle-powered rotary weed whacker

    Muscle-powered rotary weed whacker

    A rotary weed whacker using a linear-to-rotary power mechanism, as used in salad spinners and toy cars. I'm not a farmer but this seems like something which readers here could develop quickly; thanks for having me. I assembled this tool with an actual salad spinner mechanism, which does not provide enough rpm; but a higher-geared mechanism with a flywheel design might, I suspect, work. A few more details are at my reel mower blog, https://reelmowerrally.wordpress.com/ Thanks again.

    BeetClock

    BeetClock

    BeetClock is an app for the Android mobile operating system which allows farmers to easily keep track of the labor and equipment hours they invest in each crop. I developed this app in order to quickly record work times while in the field. Tracking the time that goes into each crop can help you determine which crops are profitable. The app can send work reports as spreadsheets to your email inbox. It also integrates with the NOFA Enterprise Analysis Workbook developed by Richard Wiswall (author of the Organic Farmers Business Handbook), helping users create a whole farm budget.

    Stuff Hound social shopping network

    Stuff Hound social shopping network

    StuffHound.com/farms is a place on the web were growers and consumers can meet. Stuff the mascot is meant to be an Amazon for buying locally. The basic concept is this. If you have carrots for sale in Timbuktu Stuff Hound/Google is the place where consumers. Stuff Hound is where people can list stuff for sale. Consumers can search Google or Stuff Hound to find stuff locally. The idea is to connect consumers like myself with the products locally. Producers can list one or thousands of items. Each item gets its own web page which is indexed by Google and other search engines. Consumers can then see for example when the carrots in Timbuktu are ready, when, where and how much. Instead of wishy washy guessing producers and consumers can see the carrots are available today or at a farmers market or you name it. Stuffy takes the guesswork and driving around wasting time and energy searching for something that should be found instantly searching online. There are many power tools for both producers and shoppers featured at Stuff Hound. Producers with timely listings can opt into to taking orders and have them picked up at X, Y or Z location or have buddies/followers of stuff then alert those interested. For example people follow the carrots. When the carrots are ready an alert can be sent to the people interested. Shoppers can make lists of interests and shopping lists and head to the farm or seller location listed in the web page for each item. Check out the intro page at http://www.stuffhound.com/farms. Any questions feel free to ask. NOTE: It's a free service unless someone needs me to list stuff for a fee.

    Mobile Chicken Processing Station

    Mobile Chicken Processing Station

    Insitu was approached by a local poultry farmer with and increased demand in poultry production. His needs include a mobile processing station that could be moved to various chicken pen locations - 2-4 per week - and process at least 100 chickens a week. The platform needed to accommodate 2-4 people, be mobile, provide overhead cover, and contain all necessary equipment. Scalder, plucker, evisceration table, chilling tubs, and drying rack. The need for potable heated and cooled water also existed and solutions are being developed in tandem. The solution consists of (2) Farm Tuff utility trailers - http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_486971_486971 - connected one behind the other. The trailer decks will be custom made using greenwood and will be 6 feet wide and can adjust in length from 8 feet to 10 feet - which will allow for testing and the need for any additional work space in the future. Each is rated to handle up to 4,000 lbs. Trailers have been delivered and fabrication has started. Progress images will be posted.
