Winter Vegetable Production in Missouri

Jamestown, MO 65046

 

Join us for an exciting morning at Happy Hollow Farm with the 2021 MOSES Farmer of the Year Liz Graznak. You will walk away inspired, with tips and ideas to incorporate into your existing or future organic vegetable operation! Happy Hollow Farm delivers the very best versions of peak-season organic veggies in a crowded marketplace, in addition to 85 CSA shares and whole-sale customers.

But what really sets Happy Hollow apart in their region of Missouri is season extension. Winter sales of fresh greens out of the high tunnel offer a unique and valuable product that is in high demand. With the addition of mechanization, a new wash-pack shed with a larger walk-in cooler that enables more produce to be stored through the winter, and also fall allium planting – Liz has been able to scale-up her production for this consumer demand.

This field day is held in partnership with EarthDance, a teaching farm located in Ferguson, Missouri, sharing the craft and science of organic farming with people from all walks of life. Their 14-acre historic farm provides a model of sustainable food production and cultivates food leaders alongside abundant fresh produce.

 

Topics covered:

    • Fall crop harvesting & storage
    • High tunnel and caterpillar tunnel winter production
    • Fall planting alliums
    • Designing the ideal wash/pack shed
