We are moving completely off of our rented land in Red Hook, up to our new land in Clermont. We’re taking down some infrastructure that we don’t need anymore, including a walk-in cooler and a greenhouse. We are also selling some laying hens and some other misc items. If you’re interested in any of these things let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Walk in cooler panels with person-sized door. There are six 4′ x 8′ wall panels plus two 4′ x 10′ roof panels (metal faced w/ 4″ foam, like you’d see in a restaurant). One wall panel has a door, another one has a cut out for an air conditioner (to be used w/ a cool bot). Right now this is set up as a 8′ x 8′ cooler (because one wall is built up against another cooler; you’d need two more panels or an insulated wall to make this into a free standing 8′ x 8′ cooler). Currently sits on an 8′ x 8′ platform we built with a few inches of foam insulation sandwiched between plywood as the floor. We have the platform just supported on cinder blocks, under a hoophouse outdoors.
This set up is not very polished; no special corner pieces, this unit is fully jury-rigged together and would need to be re-rigged creatively. But it does the job well.
The 15K btu A/C that we use with this about 4 years old and works great and cools the 8×8′ space down to the mid 30’s no problem. Price is $500 for panels and platform, add another $250 for coolbot and a/c. It is disassembled and ready for pickup.
16′ x 96′ gothic greenhouse frame. Built by Shelter Logic. One purlin, plywood end walls, will need new plastic. This was bought new in 2007. Not as sturdy as a Ledgewood greenhouse but it served us for seven years with no problems regarding wind, snow, etc. Greenhouse is disassembled and pieces are all carefully labeled for reconstruction; you will probably want to buy new tek screws. Price is $600.
Red sexlinks (born Feb. 2012) and Aracaunas (born April 2012). Sexlinks are still laying about three or four eggs / week per hen; Aracaunas have stopped laying due to short day length but I expect they will start again either with artificial light or when days are longer. Red sexlinks were pullets from Moyer’s (trimmed beaks), Aracaunas were started as chicks on our farm. $5 / ea for fewer than 5 hens, $4 / ea for 5 – 10 hens, $3 / ea for more than 10 hens. We have up to 200 birds.
