Hello - I'm 3rd generation here, currently restoring the land from 80 years of conventional farming, it's a process. I study herbal medicine and plants of all types, just put up my first batch of walnut powder. Have assorted livestock, grow peaches n produce and sell at the farmers market.

Left the farm for a few decades, worked R&D on several continents, enjoy building engines, restoring old equipment. Even build hydrogen generators for my farm equipment.

I like to gamble, Farming is the purest form of gambling there is!

I'm a pay as you go type of man, like to trade information when I can. I'll offer a down payment, I sometimes make organic charcaol and sell at the farmers market. Great for cooking, water filtration, anyone can do it. I've taught lots of folks. I wrote up the process years ago, nothing new, many do it this way. If you'll tell me where I'll post it with a few photo's. It seems to be an inbetween type of topic.

I posted the process recently in the Green Deane forums. Great bunch of folks over there!

Hello Dave - glad to have you here! Sounds like you are doing some interesting stuff.

What do you do with the walnut powder?

I'd love to see pics of making your own charcoal. Do we have a bio-char forum here? A bunch of new forums were just added so I'm not sure -- but I know there are people who are certainly interested in the process.

I posted how to make charcoal under Farm Income.

Walnut powder is used to treat intestinal parasites. Its also a great insect repellent.
