"What a creative and informative way to talk about how to feed livestock during a drought that won't go away." - The Sun Times

"With this book, Sean has recognized the importance of the Triple-bottom line - People, Planet and Profit. As farmers and stewards of the earth, we must find the most productive ways to grow our food. Methods that conserve resources and produce little waste.

Hydroponic animal fodder is a perfect example of this application. Sean explains in everyday terms, the ways to grow more feed, with less water and inputs, in a significantly smaller footprint. And considering the scalability, this can be adapted for the homestead hobby grower to the commercial producer. Through years of research, trials and his own experience, Sean knows first hand what works and what doesn't to help the reader get started quicker and avoid costly mistakes."
- Tawnya Sawyer, Co-owner, The Aquaponics Source

Our food systems struggle due to drought and lack of land. Hydroponic fodder is one solution because it uses 90% less water and land than forage.

One hundred years ago, most of us farmed and grew our own food. Today, less than 3-percent of Americans make the things that grow our great nation. But, thanks to new advances in technology, business, science, and society, we have been able to do much more with much less. Agriculture faces many problems today, from drought and pollution to climate change and land availability. Farmers struggle to develop sustainable agriculture practices that help the Earth and make money. Hydroponic fodder saves over 90-percent less water and land than soil-based animal feed. Research and farmers concur. Not only does hydroponic fodder save water and land, but it is also better for the Earth. Farms that adopt hydroponics can spare land normally used to grow crops for livestock. The land is better used for other purposes, like agricultural land trusts and natural preserves. Farms also use fewer inputs to produce significantly more food. Thinking Outside The Soil shares valuable knowledge for every farm to grow fodder with less water, on less land, and improve its bottom line.


I approach all challenges with a Needs Analysis. This generally begins with some sort of operational deficiency.

Water and land are scarce.
Money is tight.

It may also begin with some technological opportunity.

Hydroponic systems save resources.
Systems increase your bottom line.

This is best captured on an ‘Initial Project Needs Assessment.’ It gathers basic information about the purpose and scope of a project. It is short and allows for a quick consult without wasting anyone’s time.

This is where we would talk about if we can find a solution and the next steps. I try to ensure people have the best information to make informed decisions.
