The second Beginning Farmer Learning Group meeting will be held in Washington County on Thursday, June 14 starting at 7:30 P.M. This meeting is being hosted by Chris Lincoln and Tammara Van Ryn. Chris and Tammara started New Minglewood Farm in 1999. The farm is located at 99 County Route 52 Greenwich, NY 12834.
Chris and Tammara use a variety of direct market channels to sell the products they grow. Currently they are using a combination of farmers markets and selling to local restaurants as their main marketing channels. They have also used some market channels and have chosen to stop using them for a variety of reasons. This is your opportunity to come and listen and participate in a discussion on how to develop direct market channels for your farm.
The purpose of the Beginning Farmer Learning Group is to provide an opportunity for those that have been farming less than 10 years to come together and network and learn from each other. The group will also travel and visit more experienced farmers in the area to learn from them as well.
There is no cost to attend this meeting, but registration is suggested. Please contact Gale Kohler at 765-3500 or at . For more information about the learning group, contact Steve Hadcock at or by Email at .
