On-farm equipment hacks and energy efficiency are effective strategies to increase output and scale up the farm, but how does the smart farmer prioritize projects and maintain a low cost for making such improvements? At Juniper Hill Farm, the answer has been a mixture of DIY ingenuity to hone just the right infrastructure and tools, along with taking advantage of incentives and grants to implement the costlier infrastructure needed to run the farm well.
We’re busily preparing for the 2013 Winter Conference, which will again take place at the Saratoga Hilton City Center from January 25-27. The theme for this year’s conference will be Resilience.
Please note that we are well into planning our workshops at this point in the year. We maintain an online form for all workshop and field day suggestions, so please don’t hesitate to make a proposal for a future event (though inclusion in the 2013 Winter Conference is no longer likely).
