Friday Session 1-a

Winter greenhouses allow growth of cold-tolerant greens through the entire winter, helping you diversify and maximize your farm income. Learn economic and production basics of winter greens, and how to complement your greens with storage crops from an attached root cellar.

Ryan Pesch and his family have a certified organic diversified farm in Minnesota that includes a deep winter greenhouse. Markets include a CSA, a farm stand, and farmers’ markets. He has worked in community economic development for Extension in West Central Minnesota since 2004, and has helped beginning farmers with farm business management.
