Yeoman Engineering and Building Projects

            Every farm, small or large, organic or not, is faced with everyday challenges that seem to make life for its workers just that much more difficult. Whether it’s a problem of storage space, tool reliability and efficiency, or just plain old low cost solutions to high priority problems, every farm could use a little help. The difficulty in confronting these predicaments lies in the fact that farmers usually just flat out don’t have enough hours in the day to think about cost effective and viable solutions when there are thousands of seeds to plant, animals to care for, fruit trees to prune and countless other chores that take precedence.

            This summer we plan on tackling a few of these nuisances by producing and sharing our designs and building plans. Led by our very own Mechanical Engineering student, (Joey Springer) who is finishing his undergrad at the University of Colorado, we plan on posting design ideas, as well as updates during the building process.
