My experience is heavy in wild seed harvesting and getting better at domestic seed grow outs. I don’t use gas powered machinery to till or work the land. My experience in seed cleaning is with screens, wind winnowing, and wet fermentation. I do have a box fan and use it when needed.
My seed company is based on seeds for simple people and survival food for humans, pollinators, and earthworms. I draw each packet design by hand, and print packets with solar power here at the cabin.
I lease land at the Missoula Grain and Vegetable farm in Stevensville, Montana. This is my area for domestic seed grow outs.
