The Cornell Small Farms Program is pleased to announce the arrival of the Spring 2020 edition of the Small Farms Quarterly.
In this issue, we feature a problem-solving manual offering a step-by-step process for on-farm problem solving and experimentation, part-two of an ocean farming aquaculture series featuring productive, regenerative seaweed farms, and an advice guide for farmers interested in solar leases.
You can read articles from the Spring 2020 Quarterly online now. Or if you’d rather flip through the articles in a magazine format, take a look at our online reader to peruse this issue or feel free to download the PDF version of the Quarterly.
