The Cornell Small Farms Program is pleased to announce the arrival of the Spring 2021 edition of the Small Farms Quarterly.
In this issue, we feature an exploration of pasture weeds from Ulf Kintzel, an instructional how-to about soil blocking from Petra Page-Mann of Fruition Seeds, and the fourth installment of our small-scale beef production series, which focuses on calving.
You can read articles from the Spring 2021 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.
