Nutrient Farm beef is raised humanely in a low-stress environment with 24/7/365 access to shelter. In addition to our mobile shade apparatus, construction is now complete on our new insulated Livestock Barn. The barn has 4 overhead doors and 6 double-pane windows to allow vehicle passage and proper ventilation. The barn even permits working and calving space for the winter months. A door is always open so rain or snow, the cattle may roam or have a calm, dry place to take comfort in.
Another feature of the building is that it has been strategic designed to maximize future solar application potential. We are an off-grid operation and currently do not have any energy production on our remote East pasture. This building is facing due South to maximize solar production. The building roof is a single-slope, Shed-Style architecture to maximize solar collection real estate. The roof type is Standing Seam to allow directly attaching any such infrastructure to.
Greenhouse: All of the trim work has been completed. Next will be the installation of the overhead and pedestrian doors. We still have to clean up some building materials, but we are generally ready to move on to the next step of installing the ETFE glazing. Career...
The Insulated Metal Panels have been completed and the installation of the trim has begun. These are the green thin sheets of steel run on the outside edge of the otherwise beige building and protect the seams of the IMP panels and fasteners, preventing the elements from getting in. They also give a two-tone style, enhancing the visual palatability of the building.
Greenhouse Update: The steel framing of the Nutrient Farm greenhouse is complete and installation of Insulated Metal Panels (IMP) has begun. The IMPs being 4” thick will serve as excellent insulation, siding and vapor barrier for the building. A tele-handler...
Pure 100% Beeswax Candles from our Apiary
Pure beeswax candles burn slower than other types of candles. Beeswax also burns brighter, cleaner and purifies the air as it burns. Beeswax candles are the cleanest candle you can buy. As the beeswax burns it releases negative ions which trap dust and debris in the air, making your air cleaner – a great candle for allergy suffers. Beeswax does not smoke when it burns and has a natural pleasant honey aroma. We do not scent our candles, the candle smells this way because that is how the bees made it!
