Farmer Field Day: Season Extension Systems
August 19 @ 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.
The Missoula Grain and Vegetable Co. is a worker-cooperative of farmers who work together on 15 acres, pushing the bounds of the short Montana growing season. Some varieties of vegetables they grow almost all year round! During this field day we will hear from the folks at Missoula Grain and Vegetable Company and how they extend their vegetable season, even during cold Montana winters. Everyone who attends this Zoom event and fills out an evaluation will be entered into a raffle to win Patagonia swag!
