RICHFIELD SPRINGS — A one-day educational workshop, “So You’ve Bought the Farm … Now What?,” will be offered on Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014, at Richfield Springs High School.
The workshop will cover the basics for people who have little or no experience in land management or farming. The workshop will feature an overview of how to maintain a land’s value and assess its potential for agricultural production. Participants will be able to attend breakout sessions on starting an agricultural enterprise. After lunch there will be a general lecture on farm business and a repeat of the breakout sessions, enabling participants to attend two different sessions. Lunch will be on the participant’s own, but beverages will be provided.
Registration is $20 per person, with $5 per additional family member.
