Diversified Farm Tour: Chesapeake Green Farms

THIS WORKSHOP IS BEING RESCHEDULED FOR FALL 2019

Chesapeake Green Farms

191 Bow Wood Drive

Heathsville, Virginia

This educational workshop is free and open to the public.

The financial risk of a small family farm can be reduced by diversifying production lines on your farm. Offering a variety of profitable agricultural products and other value-added products can increase revenue potential by extending your selling season and spreading the financial risk across several lines of production. 

Join us for this farm tour led by Kelly Strickland, owner of Chesapeake Green Farms, for a look at their diverse farm operations that include oyster production, high tunnel niche crops, meat rabbit production, and value-added products.
