We've been incredibly busy here at the BZ farm, naturally, but we have some pictures to share.
We want you to be able to get a sense of what's going on here.
Remember, you are always welcome to arrange a visit and we are looking for folks to move to the farm, join the collective and share in the beauty and bounty this land offers.
(I'm the one who's always hidden behind the camera)
Rodent-proof evaporative cooling produce cage. Being an off-grid farm, we rely on the cooling properties of evaporating water to keep our produce fresh from harvest day overnight untill market day. The cage is located in the coolest room on the farm, on the north side of a sturdy building that receives shade much of the day. Even on very hot summer days, the produce on market day looks great with no mechanical, energy-consuming refrigeration.
