Farm Visit: Learn Harvest and Storage Techniques at King Hill Farm in Penobscot

May 17 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join UMaine Extension’s Boots To Bushels farm training program on May 17 from 9 a.m.–1 p.m. at King Hill Farm in Penobscot, Maine for a farm visit about Harvest and Storage Techniques with King Hill Farm’s Paul Schultz. Paul is co-owner and co-operator of King Hill Farm, an organic, diversified, family farm. This is a good chance for new farmers to learn about harvest and storage techniques and to network with other new farmers and service providers.

Boots-2-Bushels (B2B) is a 9-month hands-on market gardening education and training program for military veterans and their family members. The program is sponsored by UMaine Cooperative Extension’s Maine AgrAbility in partnership with the Veterans Administration and the Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener Association. Please Note: You do not have to be a veteran nor be enrolled in B2B to attend this farm visit.

Who Should Attend?
New farmers based in Maine who have fewer than 10 years of experience in farming with a desire to learn more about harvest and storage techniques on a diversified farm.

Limited to 10 participants.
