Event description

Description

Join us as we learn all about organic strawberry production at Brandon Family Farm. Over 1.5 acres have been planted with strawberry plants for the 2019 season to prepare for next season. Strawberries are proven to be both a profitable and beneficial crop on small acreage Rhode Island farms because they fit well into vegetable rotations, especially when planted using plastic-culture and can allow for intensive rotations. At this two hour workshop, farmers will discuss commercial organic production including planting strategies, fertility, pest management, day neutrals (full season strawberries) and rotation. Please arrive a few minutes early.

Brandon Family Farm is a certified organic three acre produce farm located in West Kingston. The farm grows a plethora of fruits, vegetables and herbs and has had incredible success for several years using plastic-culture production techniques with equipment that is typically found on vegetable farms. Farm produce is sold at local farmer's markets and is thoroughly enjoyed due to its fresh and organic quality.

Event is Free. Registration enouraged but not required. Last minute attendees welcome. Please dress for the weather and check this site for updates. Photographs may be taken at this event for NOFA RI and appear on our webpage. Sponsored by RI DEM via a USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant.
