Farming of the Future – Sustainable, Organic, Mini Farms

organic farm

If you told most traditional farmers that you could produce one million pounds of fresh, organic food on just 3 acres of land they would probably not believe it.

With more limited space these days, people are developing new methods of farming that don’t require hundreds of acres of land to produce a substantial amount of crops and food.

Greenhouse utilization, vertical farming, hydroponics, and composting techniques are some of the ways that people are able to use their small plots of land so efficiently.

Health Freedom – Produce your own food

It’s important that people have a real source of food and not have to depend on supermarkets and multinational corporations like Monsanto to grow their food for them. They do not produce food for your benefit. You need to be eating 100% organic, unprocessed foods to truly be healthy and free.

This organization called Growing Power is producing 1 million pounds of organic food on only 3 acres every year.

How are they doing this?

  • By producing 10,000 fish
  • Using 300 to 500 yards of worm compost
  • By utilizing vertical space
  • Having 3 acres of land in green houses
  • Using 1 simple aquaponic pump
  • Food is grown all year by using heat from the compost piles

Their greenhouse produces a crop value of $5 Square Foot! ($200,000/acre).
