Rhodes Development

Notice I said everyone I know in GV and Kingman, Bill. I'm all for responsible farming minus pesticides and GMOs, plus adequate dust control and responsible water use, and my friends are too. We need more responsible farmers, and if Mr. Rhodes is serious about farming his land, this would be the perfect opportunity to redeem himself to the citizens of Mohave County--by providing a need that is sorely lacking in this area, which is locally grown, organic, non-GMO products. The country needs more informed businessmen. I understand totally that there will be many who don't agree, but that is their prerogative. Just hope that all involved see the great opportunity here and have a desire to make Mohave County a better place for our children and grandchildren to grow up.  (Apr 7, 2014 | post #12247)

The man could make a fortune if he did organic and non-gmo farming. This land hasn't been used for anything for decades and could easily be designated and certified organic. That's the future of farming. Everyone I know in Golden Valley and Kingman would support something like that wholeheartedly. He's missing the boat. Just sayin'...  (Apr 5, 2014 | post #12243)

I live next door to pravada and the dust lately has been so bad we have to hole ourselves up inside our homes to be able to breathe. Zero visibility when driving down Aztec yesterday because of the dust. Wish they would water the ground with all those wells they have now.  (Mar 27, 2014 | post #12231)

Farming in Golden Valley

Five new developments I wonder about: 1) Kingman Farms is saying it is under new management. They let go the workers and put ads in the Phoenix paper for new ones, room & board provided. 2) Rumor has it that Rhodes is interested in getting new wells in the area. Thus the farming? 3) Monsanto protection act is on hold, which allowed GMO's, even if court action was involved. Possibly testing GMO's, as Shirley says? 4) Work suddenly stopped in one area after a recent article in the local paper. Why? 5) Rumors around town of largescale livestock & poultry operations coming in. Any validity to the rumors? Not sure what to think, so putting out questions. Just trying to figure out how this all works together. I have never met Mr. Rhodes personally, just have been in the area for the last 35 years, and am interested in sorting this out in my own mind. You all seem to know about this, so asking you. Thanks.  (Oct 4, 2013 | post #91)

Is this true? Is there a source available? I had heard there was a pig farm being talked about somewhere in the area, but hadn't heard about chickens.  (Sep 27, 2013 | post #12005)

I realize that you have the pravadanews website, but I am wondering about this area in particular, as I live in the area. Hopefully someone who knows more can help? Thanks!  (Sep 6, 2013 | post #11974)
