Thank you so much for sending your interns and/or coming to our field day last week at River Road Farm! Greg gave us a great tour of the farm, along with a fascinating explanation on the pros and cons of their nonprofit status. A big thanks to Dave for showing us valuable seed-saving techniques as well! And what a delicious potluck with food from right there on the farm!

Our Final Field Day at County Rail Farm in Dixon!
Wednesday, September 16th from 3pm-7pm, with a potluck dinner
Started in 2010 by Margaret De Bona and Tracy Potter-Fins, County Rail Farm is a diversified vegetable farm that has rapidly made a name for itself. With some of the earliest asparagus around, great marketing materials, and their own branded lettuce mixes sold in stores around the state, Tracy and Margaret have a lot of knowledge to share. Their field day will focus on sharing their expertise in marketing, farming efficiently, and selecting the right crops and varietals for your operation. For more on County Rail Farm, check them out on Facebook or visit their website.
Please register at least 3-4 days in advance (by September 12th) so we can give Tracy, Margaret and their crew a sense of what to expect. It really helps us prepare to know how many people are coming!
