Event description

Description

Interested in starting a small farm? Finding a good piece of land is key to a success.
Whether you are looking to purchase land or already have land, this workshop will give you the tools to evaluate a piece a property and determine if it is right for your farming enterprise. This workshop would also be a valuable resource for those with land who are interested in keeping it in agricultural production and communicating its traits to potential land owners/renters.

You will learn to assess site characteristics such as: natural resources (soils and water); microclimates (slope, growing degree days); physical assets (buildings and fences); site history (and how it may affect future farming); and, legal considerations (easements, zoning, lease arrangements, liability).

We will visit Swift River Farm in Salmon, ID. We will go over site history, current land use, soil testing and how to interpret results, existing structures and infrastructure, and future possibilities.
