Equipment Tutorial for Small Farms
September 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$15
Are you a new or growing farm looking to purchase equipment that’s right for you both financially and logistically? Making mechanized equipment purchases can be a daunting task! Join us for a hands-on evening to look at and learn about various different types of equipment to determine what will be appropriate for the size and needs of your operation. In partnership with NOFA-NY Field Days and taught by experienced farmers and a mechanic, this Field Day will help you consider buying new or used, parts and maintenance, size and condition, and some of the precautions needed to make realistic choices. This just might be the risk management tool that will make your next investment a success!
