Join us for two upcoming events looking at cropping systems in Addison and Rutland County.
August 26th 11 am – 2 pm:
Corn Variety Trial Demonstration. We will be looking at a whole series of corn silage varieties planted side-by-side to examine development and potential for earlier harvest for better establishment of a cover crop. We will also have time after lunch to see other cover crop/no-till fields. This event is FREE and THERE WILL BE A CATERED LUNCH. Yes, you read that right, free catered lunch! So grab your farm friends and get excited (hopefully) for short(er) season corn. More information can be found on our flyer: Corn Trial Field Day 8-26-16, or by contacting Kirsten Workman [email@example.com, 802-388-4969 x 347]. Vorsteveld Farm, 3925 Panton Rd. Panton, VT
Special thanks to Crop Production Services for providing lunch.
August 30th, 12 – 2 pm:
Crop Patrol in the Southern Champlain Valley. Join us and the Champlain Valley Farmer Coalition as we ‘tour’ neighboring fields to look at no-till corn, alfalfa and annual ryegrass.

More information can be found on our flyer: crop patrol 8-30-16, or by contacting Rico Balzano [firstname.lastname@example.org, 802-388-4969 x 338]. This event is free.
