The Farm Stand is open !

The Airstream Farm Stand is open daily from 10 to 7.  We offer a complement of products from our farm and kitchen, including Chicken, Duck, Pork, Rabbit and Quail. and we import The finest cheese in the world to complement what we grow here.

As is the case with eating off the farm .. we don’t have everything all the time .. we are not trying to be a supermarket. .. rather we hope you look at our Farm Stand like your garden …. you go there ….see what’s available and make it your celebration !!

The Farm Stand is on Town Hill Road (rt 219) at the rt 202 end.  We do not have a number but I think 870 Town Hill Rd New Hartford 06057 in your GPS will get you pretty darn close.  We are on the Steadman Christmas Tree farm.

Come check it out !

Will it work ??? now .. rolling it with tractor

And the answer is ….. Not even close !!! Im not sure if its because they are old .. but the plastic is way more brittle than I thought it would be.  Certainly could put less material in …but that kind of defeat s the purpose of a GIANT composting bin.   Back to the drawing board Colonel Klink !compost3

Will it Work : giant composting tank

Ok … so vessel composting makes super hot super quick finished compost .. right ?  Well what if you took a spent 1500 gal water tank … drilled some air holes in the sides … cut a door in it so you could fill it with the tractor … and filled it with straw based manure from the bird houses … and then rolled them over with the tractor a couple times a day at the start and then at least every day after .

….  Finished compost ?  three weeks ?   temps > 150 deg to kill weed seeds ?  smell gone in 24 hours ?

Will it work ??
