    small tractor cart trailer

    small tractor cart trailer

    small tractor cart trailer I bought this cultivator from an auction and paid R$1000 (US$350). Normally it goes for Us$1000 in brazil which is very expansive if you think about it. I started to look for a trailer and the prices were ridiculous high. U$1200. I decided to make my own trailer with bed tilt and brakes!

    Self Contained Mobile Biodiesel Processing Trailer

    Self Contained Mobile Biodiesel Processing Trailer

    The farm based self contained mobile biodiesel plant constructed by GreenStart is based on a common aluminum beverage trailer platform. The heat and power is provided by a 3 phase diesel generator coupled with a 10hp air compressor. Each functional component is designed to fit the standard beverage skid of 36" square which enables swapping of components. The shutter sides provide secure weatherproof environment for storage and transport. The low deck height also facilitates operation and maintenance from the ground level.

    shipping container post-harvest shed/commercial kitchen

    shipping container post-harvest shed/commercial kitchen

    This project turns a 40' insulated shipping container into a fully operational post processing station and cold storage unit as well as a commercial kitchen for value added processing. This project can be built in under $10,000 and combines several readily available technologies such as solar-hot water systems and the cool-bot so that a farmer can process, add value and store produce from a small farm without needing to pull building permits or worry about long term tenure.

    Drought Resiliance on the Small-Scale Farm

    Drought Resiliance on the Small-Scale Farm

    Initiated by the Farm Hack West Slope Colorado event, this tool navigates water supply and drought management challenges for small-scale farms in the Western US. The aim of this tool is to foster horizontal exchange of on-farm drought resiliency technique and innovation while preparing for changes in water scarcity and water politics in the West.

    Freezer Pod for Stationary or Mobile Use

    Freezer Pod for Stationary or Mobile Use

    This freezer was built to provide us with on-farm storage for our frozen meat. The box is built with jacks on all four corners that enable our farm truck to hook up to it for the occasional large delivery or pick-up from meat processors. It is cooled by commercial grade refrigeration components. It can store roughly 3000 lb of frozen meat and hold it easily at -10F. Projected energy costs are $1200 / yr. The documentation of this project will include detailed instructions of how to service the refrigeration components and what tools are needed. These are useful skills for the modern farmer and I'm looking forward to sharing what I know and getting input from others!
