Equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities.
Cows give birth to and raise calves on a cereal rye cover crop at Bill Frederick’s farm near Jefferson.
Please join us during this one hour virtual farmer meet-up to talk about the ongoing changes and challenges specific to your farms and markets due to COVID-19. Our intention is to provide a place for producers to share their insights, struggles, ideas and strategies to manage current and anticipated changes related to consumer demand, market access, labor, and enhanced measures for food safety. Meghan Filbert (Livestock Program Manager) and Liz Kolbe (Horticulture Program Manager) will facilitate the discussion.
