Come see Kate Parsons, Resource Conservationist and Soil Health Specialist for NRCS give some eye opening soil health demonstrations, hear Farmer Dave talk about his latest production experiences, and check out his no till grain drill and 2 row no till planter which he is using to plant beans, peas corn and squash. In the year he has owned the equipment, Farmer Dave has seen a big difference in his operations. He needs less time and less fuel to plant the same amount, disturbs far less soil, and spends much less time on rock removal, giving him more time for other parts of his operation. Park at the Barn and meet us at the final greenhouse on the right (with your back to the street) at 3:00. Savor some of Farmer Dave’s scratch made soup and Shepard’s Pie before you head home for the night, compliments of the Middlesex Conservation District.
