Join the Regenerative Farm Network (RFN-NJ) with NRCS soil scientist, Fred Schoenagel, to visit a couple farm fields. Fred will do a soils investigation in both fields. Farmers will learn some insights on what they can look for in their own soils before making management changes or troubleshooting a field that is not performing optimally. We also have a couple exciting demos at the fields!
In the afternoon, we'll enjoy a boxed lunch at the Prallsville Mill followed by a presentation with consultant Sarah Crooke. Sarah will discuss how to collect soil samples and how to interpret soil lab results, followed by a Q&A. Wrap up the day networking with fellow farmers, discuss regenerative practices, or just hang out!
