Friday Session I

Making the most from your harvest depends on many factors, including speed, waste, and worker motivation. We’ll share some of the techniques we use to harvest and pack produce on our farm. We’ll provide crop-specific tips, and talk about material handling techniques and equipment. We’ll also discuss how we manage our crew to keep up with the season-long demands of vegetable farming.

Cassie and Mike Noltnerwyss own and operate Crossroads Community Farm. They grow certified organic vegetables in Cross Plains, Wis. They market their produce through their 500-member CSA, the Westside Community Farmer’s Market, and wholesale in the Madison, Wis. area.
