NOFA-NY is hosting a field day on at Edge Brook Acres, 27 Hopeful Lane, Wilton NY. The field day entitled Producing Heirloom Wheat for the Personal Homestead, will provide the opportunity to experience “Home Grown” wheat production on a personal scale. Leave your tractor home and discover self- sufficiency, harm hack ingenuity, and the on farm research that reflects food production systems for the future. Michael will provide the production techniques and demonstrate the hand tools for producing wheat varieties from Red Fife and Emmer, to Banatka, and Canaan Rouge. His hand powered thresher was on display at the 2013 NOFA-NY Conference, and his Farm Hack production didn’t end there. Join us for this rare opportunity to experience this successful personal trials operation. The cost of this workshop is $10 per person or $15 for two or more people per farm. Pre-register and pay by June 19, please contact the Registration Coordinator, Stephanie, by phone at 585-271-1979 ext. 509, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or shop online at http://tinyurl.com/
