Producer Education

We aren’t just here to sell local produce. One of our main goals is to support our local producers by providing relevant, researched-based educational opportunities throughout the year. Examples of past/future topics include:

 

Basic and Advanced Beekeeping

Fruit Tree Management

Best Bookkeeping Practices

Introduction to High Tunnels

Food Safety on the Farm

GAP I and II

Economics of Vegetable Production

Greenhouse Management

Integrated Pest Management

Management of Chicken and Egg Production

Starting Your CSA Program

Farming the Web (and Social Media)

 

Which of these topics could help your business? Let us know so we can prioritize what is best for YOU, our producers.

If you have any requests for specific educational opportunities that would help your farm or business, please contact Jen Lamos at 641-682-5491 or jenlamos@iastate.edu.

We try to avoid scheduling producer education classes during the summer because we know you’re busy growing delicious food for us.
