E95: ITRH Farm Update & New Project

Hosts Aaron and Jason give an update to the urban farm project and discuss the debut of a huge new project.

After two years of gaffes, mistakes, and lots of folly, Aaron and Jason have suddenly reached the completion of the livestock portion of their urban farm. Now they look to the future for perfecting their rabbit stock. And they look forward to the start of the Aquaponics project.

And the wacky urban farmers start planning for a five year project close to every preppers desire…

    I have to say, I like the longer format. Do you grow any of the food for the rabbits at the urban farm? What kind of light does the rabbits get? I would think that they put off a lot of heat and CO2 which might be beneficial for plant production especially linked with a greenhouse setup. Because you talk about the farm a lot, I would love to see maybe a video or stills with you talking, describing the setup you are using. As another urban dweller, I am quite interested in urban farming / livestock setups. Thanks for the great work.

    Have you seen the setup of the inground pool chicken / fish farm?

      Howdy Lee,

      We currently don’t grow any specifically for the rabbits. But there is lots of stuff in the area that can be foraged for them. Not as good as the pellet and oats they’re eating. But good enough if the situation called for it.

      I have a thread going on the ITRH Forum with pictures. Will be adding more soon:

      Yes, saw that video a couple of years ago. Very neat setup.
