We will be purchasing undeveloped rural land in the north central Tennessee area. This is where we will develop an organic, non-gmo micro farm producing greens, herbs, and sprouts. Find out more about the farm at our Kickstarter campaign.
We will be utilizing technologies such as solar power for pumps, lighting, and other farm applications. We will harvest rainwater for the hydroponic greenhouses and sprout production. Our focus will be to remain carbon neutral while being completely organic and non-gmo.
We will grow several varieties of leaf lettuce, Romain, Swiss chard, Spinach, Kale and Arugula. Nutritious sprouts such as Been sprouts, Sunflower, Beet, and Alfalfa sprouts. Wheetgrass plus many others. Additionally, herbs such as Basil, Thyme, Rosemary, Mint, Chives, Parsley plus several others.
The biggest advantage that micro farming has over traditional farming is that a micro-farm sets its market and traditional farming is at the mercy of the market.
The micro farm advantage is that they can determine demand of several varieties of greens, herbs, and sprouts in a very short amount of time. Offering for instance, several varieties of leafy greens at a farmers market over a few weeks period can tell you a lot about demand. Supply can be adjusted in a very short amount of time as well. Find out more on our Kickstarter campaign.
We will spread the word about the importance of sustainable organic farming through a series of videos we will produce. The videos we will begin with the initial site preparation all the way to the harvesting operation. We intend to make recommendations as well as things to avoid. We hope that the videos will encourage others to join in the effort to grow useful herbs and greens that they can use in their lives. We hope to also have a recipe series that we will use what we grow in order to further encourage others to participate in farming on any scale.
