Exciting news as of last week, Edible Acres purchased a beautiful 1996 Ford F-150 that spent most of its working life in Virginia. Although rear wheel drive only, it now has beefy rear tires and is ready to do some serious work! Already used it within the week to:
1) Bring a face cord of firewood to my new primary residence
2) Haul ~10 cu. yrds. of wood chips from a chip pile 4 miles away
3) Haul ~5 cu. yrds. of horse manure from a manure pile 1.5 miles away.
Excited to use this truck as carefully but thoroughly as possible. We'll use it to be able to bring more plants to local plant sales and can use it to offer delivery services of things like Black Locust fence posts, mushroom logs, wood chips, and much more. Welcome new truck, get ready for a ton of labor!
New posts to follow shortly on how we'll use this truck to build an experimental compost heating system for domestic heating uses... Here's to using technology to detach from other technology!
