RAFFL Farmer Discussion & Potluck - Monday, 3/16

Jen Miller

Join RAFFL, Evening Song Farm, Gildrien Farm, and Old Gates Farm for a lively and interesting discussion about farm scale then stay to share a meal and catch up with friends, old and new, before the season is fully upon us! Deciding on Scale: What size farm is right for me? March 16 – 5:00-7:30* @ Evening Song Farm, Shrewsbury Facilitators:  Kara Fitzgerald & Ryan Wood Beauchamp, Evening Song Farm; Jeremy Gildrien, Gildrien Farm; Adam Stevenson & Kristin Jacoby-Stevenson, Old Gates Farm

Many factors go into the decision of desired farm size and what makes sense given the specific situation of each individual farmer.  Each of the farmers facilitating this discussion operates at a different scale and will share their stories of how their farm has evolved to the size at which it currently operates.  Join us to discuss how you decided on farm size and the questions you have about what size farm is right for you.

*This gathering will include a potluck dinner so bring a dish to share if you’d like!
