Mark August 12-14 on your calendar and plan a road trip to Amherst, MA for this incredible annual spectacle of farming, food, and fun. This year’s conference is combined with the Northeast Animal Powered Field Days, one of the best learning opportunities for people interested in powering their farms with draft horses or oxen. Beginning-Farmer-focused workshops run the gamut from Starting a CSA to Finding a Farm to Fit Your Vision, from Practical Biodynamics to Sharing Farm-Built Tools and Inventions.
