NOFA-NY's On-Farm Field Day in Allegany, NY
The farm season continues for the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York's (NOFA-NY) 2017 October on-farm field days with this event in Cattaraugus County:
On Wednesday, October 4, 4-7:00 pm: Season Extension - Stretching Tomato Season and Winter Greens. With New York State winters, farmers are always looking at how to stretch out their high tunnel tomato season or establish a profitable crop of winter greens. Meeting the full season's nutritional demands of tomatoes under organic management is challenging. Juggling diverse succession crops and keeping the tunnel profitable year round adds an extra level of difficulty. Mark Printz of Canticle Farm will share his experiences. NOFA-NY and the Cornell Vegetable Program will discuss what they are learning through the New York Farm Viability Institute funded initiative, “Best Management Practices for Long Term Profitable High Tunnel Soil Fertility and Health.” This event is produced by NOFA-NY in collaboration with Cornell Cooperative Extension with support from the New York Farm Viability Institute. Location: Canticle Farm, 3835 S. Nine Mile Road, Allegany, NY.
