Non-Traditional Recordkeeping Methods
December 16, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join Emily Round, Grounded Flower Farm & New Entry and Kate McGoldrick, Thousand Leaves Herb Farm; for a fun gathering over pizza at Moraine Farm to chat about non-traditional recordkeeping!
We’re hosting this Farmer Learning Circle to swap stories and insights about the unique records we keep on our farms. Beyond seeding dates, harvest logs, and cash flows, there is a ton of information on a farm that doesn’t fit in a spreadsheet. What fields flooded, favorite varieties, first frost dates, crop abnormalities, trials, and more!
Emily and Kate will kick things off by discussing what we can learn from the photos we take on our farms. She’ll share lessons from four years of snapping pics with her phone in the field. And yes, there will be pictures of flooded fields.
Then, we’ll break into small groups to delve into each other’s non-traditional recordkeeping experiences. Share what you’ve tried, what worked, what didn’t, and exchange ideas and resources. Bring along any pictures you’ve taken on your farm!
Towards the end, we’ll pool our knowledge to create a handy resource list for all attending farmers.
Best part? It’s free, pizza is on us, and we’re committed to fostering a safe space for farmers to share and learn from one another. Your stories stay, and the lessons learned leave with you. See you there!
