F2F: Till vs. No-Till at the Cloverleaf Farm ~ Dixon, CA

Kicking off autumn with our next installment of the Farmer-to-Farmer (F2F) Field Day Series: The Cloverleaf Farm is a 5-acre orchard and farm just outside of Davis, CA. Emma Torbert, Katie Fyhrie and Kaitlin Oki grow peaches, nectarines, apricots, figs, melons, strawberries and now blackberries. The Cloverleaf strives to reduce inputs into their land, and create an ecosystem burgeoning with biodiversity, and is converting to a worker cooperative in 2018.

This field day will focus on the differences between the Cloverleaf’s till- and no till plots in strawberries, peppers and popcorn, as well as soil management in their orchard and hedgerow areas.

Farm tour and discussion from 4-6pm, followed by a potluck gathering in the barn, so feel free to bring something to share and network with fellow farm-folk.

FREE to attend and open to farmers, farmworkers, interns & aspiring farmers.

This is a project of The Farmers Guild, CAFF, the Grange School of Adaptive Agriculture, The UC Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program and the Farmer Veteran Coalition.
