    $10 DIY mineral feeder

    $10 DIY mineral feeder

    This is a makeshift salt/mineral feeder that is small, cheap, easy to pull around and simple to make.Great for sheep or small flocks of all kinds that require supplements. I used a $5 rubber door mat for the top flap, and an old rubber tub for the base. Inside the tub is a board that was cut to the contours of the container and screwed in place with washers. I then put the whole devise onto some short pieces of scrap as 'skids' and tied it to a short rope for dragging around the pasture to follow the herd.

    FARM DATA

    FARM DATA

    FARMDATA is an internet based smartphone compatible records management system for produce farmers. Focus areas include field and greenhouse plantings, harvest, pack, inventory, distribution, e-invoicing, labor tracking, fertilizers, compost, cover crops, tillage, irrigation, scouting, spraying, and seed orders. The goal of FARMDATA is to replace clipboards and paper records across the produce farm, from the field to the packing house and beyond. More importantly, FARMDATA is designed to save growers valuable time both during the busy growing season and in the winter when planning for the coming year. FARMDATA improves record keeping by using “smart” data entry forms that minimize user errors, perform calculations automatically, and store useful crop production information.

    Movable Landworkers Cabin

    Movable Landworkers Cabin

    We are in the formative stage of designing a small wood cabin structure that can be transported on a trailer. They are intended to be used as temporary low impact dwellings for landworkers applying for residential permission to live on agricultural land. They will be made for home grown and home sawn timber, primarily larch and spruce; the maximum size will be 2.5m by 12m; they will have a kitchen, shower and composting toilet. They must be movable but we have yet to decide whether this means they will be built onto a chasis on designed to be raised and lowered onto a trailer base. We would be grateful for any advice from those who have also explored this idea.
