Tools for Minimal-Till Market Farming and Diversified Vegetables: Virtual Field Day
7/9/21, 11:00 AM
Rains and Sun Hilltop Farm
Independence KY, via Zoom
In their 8th year of CSA and farmers market sales from their 13-acre farm, Anna Raines and the crew at Rains and Sun have curated a rich collection of tools critical to their Certified Organic diversified vegetable production.
This virtual event (via Zoom) will focus on season extension / protected production (high tunnels, caterpillar tunnels, row cover); bed prep (walk-behind tractor and implements, broadfork); seeding and planting (jang and earthway seeders, dibbler for transplanting); weeding and cultivating (landscape fabric, hand tools); irrigation (drip tape, overhead sprinklers); infrastructure (greenhouse, packshed), and consumable products (seeds, amendments, potting media).
We’ll see many of these tools in action, hear Anna’s experience with what works and what doesn’t in their minimal-till operation, and get an inside glimpse into additional non-production tools that Anna views as essential!
Open to all and FREE to attend. Registration is required.
Funding for this event was made possible by the USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service.
(Friday) 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
