Equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities.
Cows and sheep seem just as interested in the people who’ve come to Robert Alexander’s farm near Remsen for a grazing social as the people are about them.
The Midwest Mechanical Weed Control Field Day is the nation’s largest event devoted to weeding tools. This year, due to COVID-19, the field day will be held online. In this three-part series, MMWC field day organizer Sam Hitchcock Tilton and farmer-friend Hans Bishop will host a series of virtual mechanical weed control field days at Hans’ farm. Join the pair to see and discuss new and old weed control equipment, including set-up and use in both row crops and vegetables.
