Many times when dealing with a small farm or small scale you have no one who will deal on that scale or very few.

I was watching a video of a USDA certified abattoirs with table saw and all that in a truck. How many things could be in a truck to caters to smaller scales locally.

Could a stone flower mill be put into a truck. I know you can do it with smaller machines but could you do something that could convert a lot of grain quickly into flour / so forth.

Also could you put a wool mill on a truck. … alpacas get sheered same day everything is picked wool is ready to go and spooled.

Also do you think like 15 to 30 farmers would get together to buy these items and run them themselves there by making them more competitivite with the big boys.


kinda random on this.. but one of the small mills around her closed.. kinda got thinking about.. mills. … and making own food pellets for winter ..flour ….feed all that crap

That's one of those ideas where you think - Wow, that makes so much sense - lot's of people should be doing it! And then you look around and no one does. We've been trying to get a mobile slaughterhouse going in Central FL on for years ...

There are a few, but more often it is the farmer's coop that is centrally located and material is hauled to them. That is done because the machines are too big or needed specific power.

But in the OLD days all farmers did that--threshing machines, corn shellers, etc.

The big stumbling block these days is the department_of_sad.gov The regulations are written around infrastructure.
