A + H Urban Farm is a small, family farm practicing regenerative agriculture, synthetic free, organic farming in Oklahoma City, OK.
Funded on 09/08/2020
In order to be more effective at growing produce year round, A + H Urban Farm will use a loan from Steward to purchase new caterpillar tunnels, which will enable them to have more control over pests, weather, and irrigation use. They are looking to purchase 4-6 caterpillar tunnels that will cover 5,600-8,400 sq. ft. of growing space, enabling better production during the cold winters and hot summers of Oklahoma.
They will also use the loan funds to purchase a two-wheel tractor. Their current process is very hands-on and manual, so adding the tractor will free up some of their time and allow them to expand the business.
OMRI-certified products only.
Currently compost 100% of their farm waste.
Utilize landscape fabric when possible to reduce water usage and weed pressure.
No-till using tarps to reduce weed and grass pressure.
Amy heard about us through The Thriving Farmer Podcast and it has been a pleasure to work with her on getting their project set up. The farm consistently sells out of products at a few of the local farmers markets and they're eager to ramp up their operations. We are confident that Amy and H.R. will continue to make improvements to their early stage farm and bring their farm to its maximum potential.
