Focus On Farming

Thursday, November 8, 2018

Technology is all around us, even on our farms. Robotics in the milking parlor, drone checking soil moisture & apps on your phone to tell you the heat units on your farm or to keep track of your livestock records. It’s a fast changing industry with so many opportunities to help with efficiencies & reduce time & labor. This year’s Focus on Farming will not only have our regular updates & features it will also include numerous workshops & speakers to help us all take advantage of these new technologies. Organic or conventional, livestock or row crops, large or small production, F.O.F. is committed to the economic viability for all types of farming. Providing quality education to sustain current farmers & attracting new farmers to our region is a critical component in securing the next generation's local food supply. Please join us for a full day of new ideas, old friends & a delicious local lunch. This year’s keynote speaker Mike Pearson, host of Public Televisions Market to Market
