Hey there, I'm Josh. I've been involved as user IRATA III but have done way more researching/lurking than posting in the past. Permies.com has been a great resource for me as I've worked on getting our central Texas farm started. The large farm forum has been slow at times, but as we will do a large variety of small scale homesteading efforts for our personal use the entire site has been invaluable.
Focusing on farm scale efforts- I recently discovered the Broadacre videos from Diego Footer's Permaculture Voices 3 conference and have been really excited about them. I blogged about them at my farm site (My work on this is not a monetized blog posting, the links to PV3 Broadacre videos and to my mentor farmers mentioned there are direct links). I feel it is important to share because while I have done amazing on-farm courses, this PV3 video package is an incredible bargain for the content presented.
Does anyone else have any large farm resources to share?
