Farmtek has a very pricey fodder system available. I was looking for any tips for making my own system. I'm hoping to grow a variety of grasses: buckwheat, flax, rye, millet. Just through the winter months. If anyone has done this and wouldn't mind posting a picture of their 'system' I'd appreciate it. Thanks

I dont have a fodder system yet but I have seen a lot of videos on you tube on how to set up a cheap system. I am waiting for my chicks and when they are old enough I plan on using a fodder system for them.

You may have figured out a system already but just in case I thought I might pass along a bit of info I have found.

(Hopefully this link works.) It's a great tutorial on DIY fodder systems. Found this on a thread from motherearthnews.com.

I wound up buying the farmtek system. Before that though we just used any plasticky tote lid the size of a cookie sheet. Soak the seeds then spread them out, and cover with paper towels to keep moisture in. After they started sprouting we removed the paper towels and let them grow for 7 days then removed a healthy mat of fodder. The only thing we did was keep the seeds moist not soaking wet with a spray bottle, which we spritzed them 2 to 3 times a day. This stuff is not difficult it just takes jumping in and find out what works for you and your areas climate.
