On-farm equipment hacks and energy efficiency are effective
strategies to increase output and scale up the farm, but how does the smart
farmer prioritize projects and maintain a low cost for making such
improvements? At Juniper Hill Farm, the
answer has been a mixture of DIY ingenuity to hone just the right
infrastructure and tools, along with taking advantage of incentives and grants
to implement the costlier infrastructure needed to run the farm well. A tour of Juniper Hill Farm will show how
farmer Adam has been able to rapidly expand the amount of acreage in
production through this combination of on-farm improvements, incentive
programs and dynamic CSA marketing ideas.
Hear farmer Adam’s perspective on why he chose these methods to improve
the farm’s output, and get your ideas going about your own farm’s
potential. Come prepared to share your
plans and ideas about on-farm efficiency, from tools to incentive/grant
programs. Stay for potluck supper to
celebrate the beginning farmer spirit and the bounty of summer!
