We have added a Dehumidifier to our System

Well, we keep producing between 1000 and 1200 pounds of micro-greens a day from our Feed in A Box system at Mountain Sky Ranch.  We took micro-greens with us to two regional alpaca shows the last two weekends and enjoyed the results we observed from our animals in their feeding.  We also had numerous comments and questions about what we are growing and feeding.  It is exciting. One of the small...

To be sustainable, an agricultural process needs to meet a number of criteria. One of these criteria  is related to water consumption.  The micro-green (fodder) production needs to be  much less consumptive of water than the traditional hay production process. There are basically three different general types of micro-green systems: Aquaponic systems – water recirculates,  is treated and...

That is NOT what we are...
