Winter Production & Seed Breeding at Ivory Silo Farm
Bill Braun and Dee Levanti grow in two unheated high tunnels in the winter, also utilizing two unheated low tunnels and a new heated, MDAR-funded propogation house for seedling production. In this 2-hour farm tour, Bill and Dee will share what they have learned about the most efficient and effective way to use their season extension structures within their operation. They will review their winter greens (primarily kale, chard, and cold-hardy asian greens) production strategy-- including timing and varieties for planting. The hoophouses are not used for aggressive summer production but rather are rested in summer to maximize winter production. Dee and Bill will also explain how they use their tunnels for seed breeding and saving to increase the self-reliance of their operation and the regional adaptability of their seed supply. Dee, who works for MDAR, will also give a brief overview of the grant program that funded their greenhouse for those who are interested in applying to expand their farm infrastructure.
