P6020040When i found out last fall that up to 60% of our organic chicken feed was coming from China I was a little upset. My main concern is not that it is legitimately organic more that it was coming from so far away. How could I call our eggs 'local' when the feed was coming from China!
So we have grown our own but as with everything it turns out not to be such a simple task. Unfortunately for us every farmer is growing wheat as the price is so high. California will grow some 20% more than normal this year. For us this has meant that there is no suitable storage facilities available for rent. We have had to build our own. There will be three tanks each holding about 20 tons of wheat. Agustin and I have been working on constructing the auger which will lift the wheat into the bins.
