Join us for a tour and lesson in micro-scale farming at Bigfoot Farm on Sunday. Learn how farmer Brian Cole produces those amazing veggies on such high demand at the Farmer’s Market. Now in his 5th year on one acre of leased farmland, Brian has made tremendous strides in learning what it takes to achieve economic success at a micro-scale.
While touring his farm, poking at plants, and maybe pulling a weed or two, you can ask a thousand questions. Brian will discuss soil management, crop sequencing, and the ins and outs of markets. Brian will share his experience as a farmer in Williamstown and discuss what Rural Lands can do to promote our local Working Landscape.
This site visit is part of our Working Lands/Working Hands series of site visits and workshops designed to inspire creative avenues for strengthening our farm- and natural resource-based economy.
Bring your binoculars to get a little birding in, too.
