We are farming a lovely lot on the southwest corner of N Williams and N Cook just south of Fremont. This once vacant land has had an interesting history. As the story goes, the property used to house the Nurnberg Scientific Company until it burned down in a fire in 1967. Sounds like this wouldn’t be a good site to grow food?

Here is the summary of the study and if you want to read more, here’s the final report from that study.
Additionally I’ve tested for several heavy metals.
