The Path to Organic Certification on a Diversified Vegetable Farm: Virtual Field Day
6/2/21, 11:00 AM
Old Homeplace Farm
Oneida KY, via Zoom
Maggie Bowling of Old Homeplace Farm is no stranger to vegetable production and the business of farming. Growing up on her parents’ organic farm and marrying into a pastured livestock operation, Maggie launched her vegetable production in 2014.
Since then, Maggie has dialed in her production systems; her vegetable CSA, online store, local delivery, and restaurant sales are running smoothly; and she’s transitioning the operation to Certified Organic status. Yet she’s quick to point out that she still considers herself on the beginning farmer continuum.
Join us for this virtual walk through Maggie’s vegetable operation and the steps, challenges, and triumphs she’s facing in the process to organic certification and growing her family farm business.
Open to all and FREE to attend. Registration is required.
This event is offered in partnership with Grow Appalachia and the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
(Wednesday) 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
