I started out in Basic Grains: Sorghum Beans, some fertilizer plots, then ended up building brick grain silos a 50 ton capacity in Las Mansanas, Nicaragua, and then a 100 ton capacity one in Tapatoca, Honduras. I visit my site about every two years Both silos are unused but remain a tribute to American Ingenuity: build something great then leave before properly testing it out and training people how to use it.
