Long Overdue

Hello all,

Sorry it has been so long since I have updated this blog. I do appreciate all the comments and interest in this endeavor. As stated in my previous posts, there was a chance that I would get extremely busy and have to put it off for a time. Well that happened...my current business is growing, I got married, moved...etc. However, I do believe in this for profit concept of an Urban Farm in Chicagoland. As these coming months approach, I will be spending some additional time researching types of systems and their cost. Please continue to comment and email me with ideas for this. If anyone has any information on government subsidies or tax breaks, that would be a huge help off the start.

Talk to you all soon.

  1. Hey Ryan, I'm a freelance reporter with RedEye working on a story about pumpkins and wanted to talk to you a little about your urban farming concepts.

    Thanks! Chelsea chelseamschneider@gmail.com

  2. Hi Ryan, I'm a student a the University of Chicago and I'm writing my B.A. paper on Urban Farming in Chicago, particularly the viability of public investment. I would love to talk to you about Urban Farm Chicago if you have any time, specifically if you have any insights about the practicality (cost/yield/etc.) of the initiative. Any help would really be appreciated. Hope this email finds you well.

    Best Regards,
    George Tarmy


  3. I am interested in starting this concept in Atlanta and am just at the beginning stages, although I do have access to urban property and contacts at institutions and restaurants I know would be customers.
