Your farm host, Erik Dietz, is owner and operator of the 2 acre farm where he works full time with one part time employee. Erik will be sharing his farming story as well as giving a tour of the diversified vegetable operation featuring some NRCS grant funded high tunnels and the infrastructure he has built to support the 2 acre operation (1 1/4 acres on the home farm and another acre leased). Erik will talk about their pollinator habitat, cover cropping systems, organic practices and more! They farm on a hand scale, meaning they rarely use tractors or do any tillage unless opening new ground as they move towards no-tillage. They have sold through CSA, farm stands and farmers markets. They are currently adapting their marketing channels to meet the changing needs of the farm. Erik looks forward to hosting as participating in and supporting a vibrant farm community is what keeps him going!
