ACORN Winter Workshop: Grower to Grower: Meeting Market Demand for Organic Corn

23 Pond Lane
Middlebury, VT

This farmer-to-farmer workshop will be presented by the Wrisley family from Essex, NY, who currently grow 100 acres of corn for Vermont Tortilla Company on their 650-acre farm. The Wrisleys are growing organic wheat, hay, soybeans and corn in their rotation. Vermont Tortilla Company will also give a brief overview of their business and discuss their desire to support local farms and food production.

Organic corn offers producers a new market opportunity to significantly boost their profit per acre. Come find out if it can work on your farm.

All organic dairy, grain, bean, hemp, producers are encouraged to attend. Certified organic & transitional organic producers seeking higher value rotational crops should join this conversation! 

Register here.

Lite refreshments will be served. Coffee talk starts at 8:30, workshop starts promptly at 9:00. Cost is only $15.00

In the event of a storm cancellation, we will inform registrants via email and the workshop will be rescheduled at a later date.
