NeedsFoodBadly'sPublic Farm @ SMP8"No one needs this more than me!" -NeedsFoodBadlyIntroduction:This farm was built on 22 August, 2015 and mostly finished on 23 August.I've been with EMC for a little over a month and I wanted to give something back to the community! I harvested most of the materials I made to build this myself and paid out of pocket for extra costs. I was in part inspired by nonames1_2's public farm (1243) on SMP1 town.This is a manual farm that works off the sweat of your brow. Why not automated? It may be partially automated in the future but for now an automatic farm would represent a greater investment than I can afford and would also make it a higher-value target for griefing/theft.This won't make you rich but if you're just starting out in EMC like I still am and you enjoy farming, you can make and harvest food for future adventures or to sell for some rupees on the side without turning your personal res into Harvest Moon.Screenshots: Location:SMP8, Wild South "/v wild s", less than a minute south of the spawn.
