NOFA-NY Winter Conference

Organic Farming Meeting in Saratoga Springs
by Stephen Kaye
Mon Jan 11th, 2016

This year’s NOFA (Northeast Organic Farming Association) conference (Jan 22-24) in Saratoga Springs has “Ecosystems, Economics, Energy and Equity” as a title, but don’t be put off by all the “Es”.  It’s mostly bread and butter how-to and peer to peer revelations where hard-learned secrets are disclosed.  Sessions on how to raise hogs for beginners, rabbits and watering livestock and pasture management;  sessions on crop nutrients, marketing organic meats, growing organic grains, poultry, sheep and goats,  agro-forestry, mushrooms and fungi follow.  It’s all about learning from each other and sharing experiences.
