It’s official, Really, She Bought a 12 acre Farm, gonna go live in the Barn and set up a fish farm.

So Aquaponic Lynx the farm will be moving about 17 miles to the west of where the Residential farm is now.

Very exciting but it will likely take a couple months to get totally moved and up and running at the new property. This weekend is probably the last good chance for tours at the current location in Tangerine. So Easter Sunday Farm tours at the old place in Tangerine.
Come summer I’ll be doing farm tours at the new Place over in Yalaha, FL once we get set up.

It has been a rough past two weeks trying to get the deal on the property closed. The village idiots at BOA kept loosing paperwork and asking for extensions on the closing (and yet if I were to delay the closing for any reason they would have charged me by the day.)

Anyway, I’ll be working hard getting the place habitable and ready for the aquaponics and other animals to move over. So much to move, so little time. Stay tuned for updates and the announcement about the first farm tours (which probably won’t be till Late May or June.)

One of my favorite things about the place (besides it being a nice chunk of agricultural land) is the steel roof to collect rain water off of. I should be able to run the systems with only minimal well water if I can get a bit rain water storage tank (or a couple of them.)

Anyway, that’s the big news. Aquaponic Lynx LLC will have a new home and enough space and the right zoning to be able to run a semi commercial auqpaonics operation without the neighbors constantly causing me code enforcement issues. Just around the corner are a produce stand, a BBQ place, and a bakery that may be the perfect outlets for some of the local produce and fish.

So this is the New thread for the New farm systems.

If anything the nasty neighbors did you a favor. To think you would still be stuck on a small chuck of property without their help. Nice chuck of property there. What other kinda wacky critters do you have plans for there? Mini giraffes? http://www.petitelapgiraffe.com/

Congratulations! The last two weeks of escrow are a bear! Now that it is over the fun of moving all your crap, I mean cherished possessions, begins. Get used to looking at cardboard boxes! I am positive all of that space will be put to good use.

Love the farm and am jealous of the shift..

One question, comment..

the roof on the Barn.. is it a Zinc Roof or is it a colour bond..?
- if it is a Zinc you will need to paint the roof at some stage if you want to use it to collect water for Fish..

I do love the whole concept and wish I could do the same...
A barn/shed conversion.. great idea..
