Long Description:
This 6ft diamerter Aermotor is on a 35ft tower on a vegetable farm in the middle of Silicon Valley. The farm is open (for now) during the Spring Summer and Fall. I wonder how long this prime piece of real estate will remain as a Farm?

The drive chain is hanging down to a water pump but is not connected. The pump below is a hand operated pump but could be easily attached to the drive chain to pump water.
