Farm In Michigan Growing Local Bitcoin Economy

by KEVIN CRUZ on SEPTEMBER 2, 2014 0

In Ann Arbor, Michigan there is a plot of land called Arbor Hills Farm, an organic farm that leases land from bigger property called the Tilian Farm Development Center, where vegetables and livestock are cultivated.

The products are then sold to members of the community through a system called Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) in which members, consisting of local citizens and local restaurants, receive fresh produce on a normal basis.

Arbor Hills is no ordinary farm, however. They lease out land and provide fresh produce and chickens for bitcoins.

Arbor Hills Farm is run by Katie Shafer, a yoga instructor/farmer who previously studied physics at Michigan State University, and Dan Till, who studied economics and Chinese at University of Michigan and currently runs a Bitcoin Consulting business:

More recently,  Dan has been responsible for Tilian Farming Development Center’s “Bitcointegration.”
