Virtual Field Day: Winter Crop Storage 

Zoom (virtual): Tuesday, December 8

Wild Flight Organic Farm grows a range of winter storage crops including carrots, cabbage, onions, squash and root vegetables which they sell through the winter at farmers' markets and wholesale channels. Building on the success of KBFA's last virtual field day with Hermann and Louise Bruns on field crop production, this field day will provide a virtual field tour of Wild Flight Farm's winter storage and packing areas and address questions of humidity, air circulation, temperature and more. There will be plenty of time allocated to discussion and Q & A regarding the specifics for storing individual crops. 

Tuesday, December 8, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm​ (PST)
