Meet and Greet Your Farmers – Small Axe Farm
January 25 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
You are cordially invited to meet the people who grow food for YOU! Heidi Choate, Erin Perkins and their son Huckle from Small Axe Farm will be in the cafe to chat with you about their farm and all the ways they bring healthy, home grown food into our community. Their farm is an off-the-grid, no till, organic homestead farm in Barnet, Vermont. They farm here first and foremost here because it is their home. Their south facing hillside has deep fertile soil. Farming on steeply sloped land presents its challenges, but they have developed many strategies to not only successfully farm here but also to use the slope to their advantage as part of their farming system. While they are here, gather insights on off-the-grid living, how to plant a no till garden, gardening on very steep hillside terrain, season extension, canning and preserving. Ask some questions. For example, “What is a day in your life like?” Or maybe you would like to say, “Thank you for growing the food I eat!”
