The SAES’s 14th annual Small Farms Field day at the University Farm will be Thursday, June 11. There will be five demonstrations between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. SAES researchers will be joining Extension specialists and associates to discuss findings from on-farm research into truffles, urban agriculture, summer cover crops for organic as well as conventional vegetable production, solar energy and rain recovery systems for high tunnels, and swine genetics for pastured pork. Also at Small Farms Field Day, there will be poster presentations of research into animal production and human health, forest farming with medicinal plants, value-added products for grape pomace, and vegetable oil beetle deterrents for cowpea production.

Cards have gone out announcing the field day, but if you know of someone interested in research on small-scale agriculture who might not be on the mailing list, feel free to forward along a .pdf  of the card.
