The last quater of City Farm consists of this field with a healthy pumpkin crop crowing in straight rows on some well-tilled soil. The field is shielded from the surrounding roads by a thick hegdge. Putting the four quarters together, we get the complete City Farm. For the moment, this is how it will remain, but I might make some more blocks in future to add additional fields and extend the farm further.
This is the next installment in my City Farm block – the Yard. There are some outbuildings, a barn, silos and wind turbine for generating power to heat the greenhouses (which are part of another module I have already built).
Back in December I showed you the first part of the Micropolis City Farm, the greenhouse complex. This next quarter block is the commercial orchard where they are growing apples, pears, cherries and plums for sale in the as yet unbuilt farm shop. There will be more additions to the City Farm soon, so watch this space.
One of my recent videos showed Pumpkin House, the Headquarters of the Micropolis Farmers’ Union. So it should come as no real surprise to find that Micropolis actually has farms – and this is the beginnings of one of them.
