November by the Numbers

We make a real effort to be conscientious of how we run our farm. We’re using this data so people can see some of the realities of a functioning farm and so we can challenge ourselves to reflect month by month on how we could operate even better.

Some of the numbers from the month:

  • Amount of Space Currently Planted: 3260 square feet

  • Number of Plants Planted:

    • Vegetables:349

    • Herbs: 100

    • Fruit Trees/Other Perennials: 12

  • Pounds of Harvest: N/A

  • Seedlings Re-potted: 124

  • Rain Water Harvested: 370 gallons

  • Harvested Rain Water Used: 70 gallons

  • Compost Made on the Farm: 1.5 Cubic Yards

  • City Water Used: 769 gallons

  • Biomass (organic waste) Collected (kept out of our landfills)

    • Woodchips: 11 Truck-loads = 165 cubic yards = 41.25 tons

    • Transportation: 6 Gallons

    • Other Biomass: 157.5 lbs. (coffee grounds/spent grains)

  • Gasoline used by the Farm: On the Farm: 1/4 Gallon
