CRAFT Program at Grounding Stone Farm September 22nd

 

Blueberries are a staple fruit in New England. Whether adding them to your farm operation or growing them in your backyard, this fruit is sure to be a winner for your business or home. However, growing fruit can have its challenges, especially grown organically. This CRAFT workshop will focus on the organic soil management needed to ensure good growth in your blueberry bushes and strategies for deterring pests from also enjoying the fruit you grow. Other topics may be discussed if time allows.

Tours are free for farmers, farm workers and NOFA-NH members. Pricing for all other learners is based on a sliding scale, from $5-15. For more information visit

CRAFT Program at Clyde Farm Oct 22nd

 

Clyde Farm raises 700 broilers and 60 turkeys each year as well as processes all poultry on the farm. The finished products are sold direct to consumers through retail and CSA subscriptions.  Chicken and Turkey is in high demand and has a relatively fast return on investment for the small farm. Although the broiler season will be over, participants will get to see turkeys on pasture as they transition from tractors to free range poultry netting.  Topics covered will include nutrient cycling on an organic diversified farm, pasture health, predators, brooding, chicken tractors, solar powered electric fence, processing, storage, business planning and more.

 

Tours are free for farmers, farm workers and NOFA-NH members. Pricing for all other learners is based on a sliding scale, from $5-15. For more information visit
