“The tour will leave the farmyard a little after 10am. We will cover the basics of our production systems, our marketing model, our growth, our strengths and our weaknesses. We’ll pool our collective culinary skills for a farmer potluck from noon to 1pm; please bring a dish to share and your own place setting. After lunch we plan to hike to some of the remote corners of the farm and use your experiences to guide us as we create a farmer training program here.” (Essex NY Farm Events)
