The concept of this farm is to use all advantages:
Let us just say we are to develop around 208 acres of land, including waste lands to grow fresh produce and this does not define just vegetation but to also have live products:
We for every acre should have a cow the cow would help sustain, the vegetation will feed the cow and the milk and milk products will take care of the daily running of the farm viz a viz payments such as wages. The dung of the cow would fertile the soil as manure or it can be sold as well. The urine will also be sold and it can be used to water the plants after diluting and treating the smell. There would not be shortage of water.
The Poultry is another such source, the waste can be mixed to the soil and the soil can retain water and will not continue to be porous. The meat will sale will help sustain in comparison to selling live birds.
The marine produce will also meet the needs of finance as it is sold. The slush will be used to grow healthy vegetables in pots within green houses.
