I am a full time chemist and part time farmer, nature enthusiast, bird-watcher and environmentalist. The photo to the left is a load of barrels I picked up from a meat packaging plant in Manhattan Kansas to convert into rain barrels and composters.
My wife and I farm land in Sedgwick County Kansas. We have a home in Wichita that we rent to students and we use the yard, garage and out building as an urban farmstead and I refer to this property as the “Coe Farm” in my posts. In addition, we have a family farmstead, Turkey Foot Farm, outside of Derby Kansas where we grow food crops and raise poultry. The photo below shows me with one of our rodent control partners.
