Fall 2021

Dave Perozzi / Wrong Direction Farm

The Cornell Small Farms Program is pleased to announce the arrival of the Fall 2021 edition of the Small Farms Quarterly.

In this issue, we feature the first in a series of articles on how farmers can include pasture raised turkeys in their operation, an article on how experimentation with small-scale processing of insects into food products can shed light on new opportunities for the adventurous farmer, and a photo essay documenting our on-farm trials on tarping practices for organic vegetables.

You can read articles from the Fall 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.
