Farmer Field Day: Efficient Vegetable Farming Equipment
July 22, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
Farmer Field Days are production-focused, on-farm workshops to help beginning farmers and ranchers get practical information that they can use to plan or enhance their own operations. This year to accommodate social distancing guidelines, we will be launching a Virtual Farmer Field Day Series! One day each month, we will “visit” a different farm through a virtual tour during the afternoon to learn and see tools in action.
Amaltheia vegetable farm began in 2010 when Nate Brown decided to start a vegetable branch of Amaltheia Organic Dairy. Since 2010, Nate has grown the operation and now grows on 3 acres and has 5 high tunnels. He now sells the produce to several local grocery stores and at Bozeman farmer’s markets. During this field day we will learn about how Nate is using certain equipment such as a Paper Pot Transplanter and greens seeder to increase efficiency on his farm. Everyone who attends this Zoom event and fills out an evaluation will be entered into a raffle to win Patagonia swag!
