In our three year leafy greens trial, part of the grant allowed us to purchase equipment for seeding and harvesting the greens. This equipment is being used at the farms in the trial, and is housed here at Cloud Mountain.
This piece of equipment will allow very fast and efficient harvesting of greens, including mixed greens for salads or braising greens.
The greens are doing great in the moist, cool early summer weather. These are very fast to mature varieties, so can be replanted on a regular basis for continual harvest.
If any farmers are interested in learning more about the project, let us know. There will be workshops this fall and again next spring.
