SAVE TIME AND MONEY ON INFRASTRUCTURE

The Ridgedale Farm Builds book is the exciting result of a collaboration between Richard Perkins and Moritz Reichartz; step-by-step build instructions of all the low-cost infrastructure created at Ridgedale Farm, Sweden, over the years.

Think IKEA instructions for farmers! With materials lists and detailed CAD illustrations and handy tips and pointers to help you save valuable time in planning and money on materials.

We show every piece, every angle, every connection and every step visually so you can’t go wrong! In fact, you’ll be able to build them more precisely than we did, as we originally designed everything in Moleskin notebooks!

CONTENTS

This 650-page book (almost the same size brick as Regenerative Agriculture!) details how to build all the things we’ve developed up here at 59N in Sweden in precise detail.

From our iconic egg-mobiles to hernia-free broiler pens, Europe’s cheapest approved slaughter facility to a super-cheap approved meat smoker. From our earth-sunken lean-to greenhouse to our wash and pack station for the market garden, through to our improved Caterpillar tunnel design or yurt builds.

If you are handy with basic tools, you’ll be able to recreate any of the designs detailed in this work.

There are short written introductions to each chapter that explain why and how we came up with the designs, and how we use them. There are also regulatory submissions for the slaughter facility and smoker, that others in the EU can use to save them weeks of drafting their own.

WHO THIS BOOK IS FOR

R

People who enjoy the creative process of building things themselves.

R

People who want to have a go, but want detailed guides for confidence.

R

New farmers wanting to build up infrastructure at low-cost.

R

Existing farmers interested in adding regenerative enterprises.

R

Homesteaders wanting practical build plans.

R

Anyone planning to build any of the structures included who wants to save a bunch of time and money in the process!
