Equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities.
This program is for growers extending their cropping rotation with a small-grain and legume cover crop.
We have cost-share for both the small-grain and corn years of your rotation.
Focused on commercial-scale apple production, this workshop will explore keys to successful and sustainable apple production in the Midwest. Join us at Wilson’s Ciderhouse and Venue to hear from regional experts on apple production, connect with other growers, and venture out for a tour of production orchard at Wilson’s, led by owner Paul Rasch. Lunch featuring local foods will be provided, with time for networking.
