We’re back on Joel’s book – Folks, This Ain’t Normal – today. So glad you could join in. 🙂
“If we made a list of resources Americans take for granted, the top spot would go to water.”
Here at Polyface, we’re always looking for ways to capture more water. We build ponds on the mountain and gravity feed the water through pipes down to the animals.
Our dream is to set up a rain collection system that would gather water from all of the roof tops here on the farm. Hasn’t happened yet, but perhaps one day.
We always pump water out of the ponds for watering the garden during droughts and all of our water during processing days gets collected and pumped onto the fields for a little irrigation and fertilizer.
Imagine for just a moment that every drop of water you use today had to be carried by hand in a bucket. Would that cut down on your use?
