Pass It On
Passing on of knowledge from farmer to farmer works because farmers are credible to each other. Within Practical Farmers network, farmers feel comfortable openly sharing information and admitting they don’t know it all. They recognize constant exploration fosters ongoing innovations on their farms, improving their profitability, providing ecosystem services and promoting vibrant communities.
Attend to be part of the 30+ year tradition of information-sharing! Join in as farmers share how they conserve both money and soil, grow and market a multitude of crops, practice sound financial and production record keeping, access land and capital, pass on the farm to the next generation, and more.
