Join us and the Farmer Veteran Coalition of Vermont for farm-fresh pizza and a hoe down in celebration of Wild Roots Farm!
Wild Roots Farm is a community based project that utilizes regenerative practices to develop resilient food systems and healthy soil. Come and enjoy lunch baked in NOFA-VT's wood-fired pizza oven & live music from 12-2pm, followed by a farm tour.
Wed, Sep 27 from 3pm - 6pm
Learn about the work that NOFA-VT is doing on cost of production for vegetable growers. While this workshop will focus on harvest efficiency of carrot and beet crops, we will also discuss step by step methods for determining cost of production for any crop, so growers can focus on their most lucrative crops and make improvements to increase profitability. We’ll tour Jericho Settlers Farm with consultant Richard Wiswall, taking a look at the equipment they use and how they maximize efficiency harvesting these root crops. Learn tricks and techniques to improve yield before the root crop harvest kicks into gear!
