The Cornell Small Farms Program is pleased to announce the arrival of the Spring 2022 edition of the Small Farms Quarterly.
In this issue, we feature the results of a CSA farm experiment to minimize inputs, mechanization and soil disturbance in their market-scale potato growing operation. We also have part eight in an ongoing series on raising beef cattle, and an advice guide with suggested durations for pasture rest.
You can read articles from the Spring 2022 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.
