Coming up on Friday at Stonewall Farm in Keene, NH.
Small Scale Grain Fodder & Demonstration Day, Friday August 16th, 9 am-12 pm
Want to witness the next chapter of our farm story take shape? On Friday August 16th, with technical assistance and support from GreenStart New Hampshire, we will be demonstrating our first-ever barley harvest at our leased Bradford Road fields in Keene (weather permitting) with brand new Boaz combine harvesters. All of the barley harvested here will take the resultant seeds and go towards growing barley fodder to feed our +30 dairy cattle. To our knowledge, this will be the first modern, larger-scale barley demonstration in southwest New Hampshire in over 100 years, so you don’t want to miss this opportunity! Stay tuned for our brochure link and more information on the itinerary for the day, which will also include our aged cheddar cheese and farm-made yogurt at day’s end.
