Greg Garbos brings his training and experience in conventional engineering to his work as a small farmer and with small farmers. He is the owner and cofounder of Four Season Tools, a greenhouse and horticulture supply company that also provides farm design consulting, as well as the owner and founder of City Bitty Farm, a grower of microgreens for Kansas City area restaurants. Greg and I dig into using intentional decision-making as a basis for developing a farm around sound principles.
Osborne Seed Company: Founded by seed professionals and dedicated to serving professional growers of all scales, Osborne Seed provides quality seeds, excellent customer service, and a fantastic selection.
Greg suggested hightunnels.org as a resource, and as an original resource that got him into the world of agriculture.
I’ve bought BCS two-wheeled tractors from a couple of different suppliers. I bought my last one from Earth Tools – like Greg said, this is the place to get them. I won’t buy another one from anybody else.
Greg talked about the way that his alarm systems from La Crosse Alerts help put his mind at ease.
A trolley system has come up multiple times in the short history of the Farmer to Farmer Podcast. Four Season Tools has a good one available here: https://www.smallfarmtools.com/trolley-systems-info
Greg asked me to post a picture of the small pallet system we put in place at Rock Spring Farm. This was modified from a standard hand cart by a local welding shop, and the pallets were built locally by a small pallet manufacturer for less than $2.00 each.
