Work ahead...

Test Field

During two years we had a lot of work to do.

 

We started out on a plain field, without any infrastructure, No water, NO electricity, NO tools, almost NO money...

Here a few pictures of the last two years...

This was all my equipment when I moved into our land, with that I built everything we need...
