  • How to start a Pearl Farm

    A Layman's Guide.

    From Kari's Pearls, a treatise by Maria Haws.

    I see this is from 2002, so maybe we already have it listed.

    I've just downloaded it to my Kobo and will be looking forward to reading it when I get some spare time. Thanks Caitlin!

      Since I seem to have mastered ant farming (those pesky critters come into my house every spring) maybe I can master pearl farming too! Somehow, though I think this actually much more difficult than an ant farm!

              I stickied it, since there was only one other stickied thread in Pearl Farming.

                Oh wow! Look what I found! I was browsing, looking for Pearl Farming for Landlubbers, or something. I'm bumping it, because we have so many new people. I'd forgotten so much of the article, it's a good refresher.

                  I was thinking about pearl farming, several ideas, location, species, technics and also species preservations by farming, but would need partners (EU).

                    Thanks a lot, Caitlin. I am just in need of such a book. Such great material, feel like back to school.

                    Can anyone tell me what species is this olive color in the middle representing in Figure 4 on page 13? The denotation is very blurry. I get the yellow and the green, but not this olive.

                    Table 2 in appendix is screwed. That's one of the most important parts, because it's the table of costs.

                      StarryPearl our dear Caitlin passed a couple of years ago.
                      And for inquiring minds, the ant farm is still going strong!
