Livestock Production with Horse Power
Doubletree Farm is a four-year-old, small-scale diversified family farm that relies on horse power for plowing, planting, cultivating and harvesting. Farmers Sam Thrasher and Paul Soodak produce vegetables, beef and pork, as well as hay and grains for the family milk cow and their flock of laying hens. Most of their farm products are sold directly to customers at the local farmers market and through a small winter CSA, with some product going to wholesale markets, local stores and bakeries. Come see how Sam and Paul have developed an integrated, community-based farm utilizing horse power, livestock, manures, cover crops and crop rotations.
Registration is from 12:00 to 12:30 pm, the farm walk from 12:30 to 4:00 pm. Beverages are provided.
Cost is $15.00 for Tilth Producers members, students, and interns, $25.00 for non-members. Paid pre-registration is recommended for all farm walks. Pre-register online at www.tilthproducers.org or mail a check with your farm walk choices to:
