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!
