She is looking for 10 beginning farmers in southern Vermont (that covers us in the Rutland Region) growing vegetable/fruit crops and/or managing pasture/hayland.
The program provides free soil sampling/interpretation services (up to 5 per farm). Participating farmers will be able to reduce costs, increase production and minimize nutrient run-off through a better understanding of soil testing and fertility and appropriate choice and application rates of soil amendments.
Please contact Sylvia directly if you are interested.
