Farmer Kat Becker welcomes you to her family’s certified organic operation, showcasing a third-generation family farm committed to local community, environmental sustainability, and providing a beautiful and constructive setting to raise a family. Her highly diversified farm includes vegetables, fruit, maple syrup, grass-fed beef, pastured pork, and eggs. The farm’s newest venture is Farm-to-Table Pizza, which you can experience firsthand by staying after this In Her Boots workshop.
Kat will take us on a detailed tour of her farm, including the certified commercial kitchen, the new pack-shed and renewable energy investments (a wood gasification and solar installment), hoophouses, field sites, and more. Workshop topics include running a diversified value-added business, organic techniques, CSA operations, and integrating family life into the farm business. Stay for their Farm-to-Table Pizza night for pizzas featuring the farm’s produce to see how ventures such as this not only help diversify income, but also build community connections.
