Awesome Farm is a pasture-based farm in Tivoli, New York. We raise grass-fed lambs and pastured meat chickens. All of our animals are raised on pasture. Any grain that we feed is certified organic. We are committed to farming practices that care for our animals and for the land.
Our mission is to provide high quality, nutritious food while being caring stewards of our animals, and tending to the health of the land and our community. More: http://awesomefarmny.com/About the Waterpod:
The Waterpod demonstrates future pathways for nomadic, mobile shelters and water-based communities, docked and roaming.
It embodies self-sufficiency and resourcefulness, learning and curiosity, human expression and creative exploration. It intends to prepare, inform, and provide an alternative to current and future living spaces. More here: http://www.thewaterpod.org/concept.htmlGETTING THERE
