Diversified & Sustainable Farm Production at Dayspring Farm

JUNE 6, 2019
9AM-11:30AM

Dayspring Farm
942 Buena Vista Rd
Cologne, VA

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 a tour of Dayspring Farm led by owner Charlie Maloney, who will discuss the diverse and sustainable production practices he uses in his operation, including: 
•    High Tunnel Production for extended season growing
•    Vegetable and small fruit crops for Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) 
•    Drip irrigation systems
•    Pest management in fields and high tunnels
