OPENING MEETING - perennial crop & farm yard tour + potluck dinner

  • Red Fire Farm 184 Meadow Road Montague, MA, 01351 United States

Meet near the long barn that is parallel to the road and that has a map of the fields on it. (DO NOT GO TO THE RED FIRE FARM GRANBY LOCATION!)

 (4 – 5:15) Packing Shed Tour 
The meeting will open with a tour of the Red Fire farm yard area with a focus on looking at and discussing some of the perennial food crops that are situated on the home farm fields.  We have patches of blueberries, asparagus, raspberries & strawberries that we have established over the last few years and are now coming into full production.  We will also tour the packing barn that is used for washing & packing 100 acres of crops, and if time we may also have a look at the shitake mushroom area that is in our hemlock forest.

(5:30- approx. 7 P.M.)  Opening Meeting and Potluck
Get an overview of the CRAFT program, along with a chance to meet your fellow farmers and apprentices from other farms.  Potluck & meeting will be held in our head house building which is part of our large seedling greenhouse.  Bring food!
