Hey there, and welcome to KTech Farms!
My name's Kevin, and I created KTech Farms in February of 2023 in an attempt to create an urban farm that combines hydroponic and regenerative growing methods. These blog posts are meant to share my knowledge and experiences in the process and, hopefully, help others do something similar.
So! Where do I come from? Well, my grandparents were farmers in St. Louis and, although I was able to help them growing up, I entered the IT field and currently work full time as a software engineer. I still have a lot to learn about all things agriculture, but I've also accomplished a fair amount so far and have had a few people asking me questions or telling me I should write about it, so here I am.
My main focus so far has been related to hydroponics and vertical farming; However, as mentioned before, I'm intrigued by a hybrid model that combines vertical farming with traditional and regenerative methods. I feel that the two systems could complement each other well, especially when adding solar and agrivoltaics into the mix 🙂
So what kind of content can you expect going forward? Quite a bit actually! You'll find information on
- DIY systems
- Pest management
- and a lot more!
Even better, I'll have content spread out between blogs, videos, and podcasts, so you can get the information when and how you want it.
Thank you for visiting, and I hope you'll stick around for the agventure!
