This is a quick post of the farm equipment that I will be using on the farm. Some of these items are already being used but I am expanding the operation on the new farm in 2017.
FARM EQUIPMENT I USE
Quick Cut Greens Harvester: http://bit.ly/2hzcfFC
The Quick Cut Greens Harvester from Farmer’s Friend LLC is a time-saver. Using only a cordless drill to power the cutting blade and the spinning brush, one person can easily cut a 25′ or 50′ bed in minutes. Compared to harvesting by hand, this tool will save hundreds of hours each season.
Knife and Tool Sharpener: http://bit.ly/2hQPUz9
This tool is essential to a farmer because it will sharpen any knife commonly used on the farm. It is perfect for sharpening the Quick Cut Greens Harvester blade so you always have a sharp blade when you are ready to harvest the greens on your farm.
Jang Seeder: http://bit.ly/2hw85wy
The Jang Seeder makes quick work of planting seeds efficiently and accurately. The turnover of beds on my farm requires the use of a quick seeder.
The Coolbot: http://amzn.to/2ihom7d
The Coolbot Walk-in Cooler Controller is a low-cost alternative for your walk-in cooler. Using a window air conditioner and the Coolbot controller will turn any well-insulated room into a walk-in cooler. You can build your own walk-in cooler or purchase a used walk-in cooler from a restaurant supply company or even on Craigslist. A walk-in cooler is a must on a commercial urban farm to help remove the field heat from your produce after harvest.
We already have a growing social media presence on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and Pinterest. We will also be working with great companies like Amazon.com and YouTube in the hopes these ventures can help us afford this website and help us earn a little online income for our many projects. If you are looking for a book or some of the equipment we use on the farm, please use the links and advertisements found on the site.
