Farmers, gardeners and the general public are invited to the 13th annual Small Farms Field Day, 8:30 a.m. to noon Thursday, June 19, 2014 at the University Farm at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, 3136 McConnell Road in Greensboro.
The free, rain-or-shine event is an annual showcase of the latest in agricultural technology and techniques, and is sponsored by The Cooperative Extension Program at N.C. A&T State University.
This year’s showcase includes demonstrations on:
  • Dairy production, including artificial insemination
  • Goat genetics
  • Alley cropping: organic pecans and bell peppers
  • Test tube plants
  • Integrated Pest Management for vegetable crops
  • Organic vegetables and cucumber grafting in high tunnels
Growers interested in traveling to this field day from Boone should contact Area Agent Richard Boylan at richard_boylan@ncsu.edu or 828-264-3061 to reserve a seat. Since the Extension van is already booked on another mission that day, there is only room for two passengers! We will depart at 6:30 AM.
