This field day will cover all aspects of small-scale grain production, including cleaning and processing for corn and small grains. We will begin with a walk through the fields to discuss planting, weeding and harvesting. Learn simple techniques for seed selection and saving, along with small-scale options for drying and cleaning. We will take a look at the mill room, and cap off the day with a trip 6 miles north to check out some trial beds in the nursery.
Attendees are invited to bring a picnic basket and enjoy a meal at the farm.
