Been to multiple SSAWG conferences, Small Farm U, lots of time asking questions from other farmers & CNG Inspectors
Please briefly describe your experience with mentoring, training, or advising other farmers, if any.
We work with several farmers sharing information and experience.

The overall quality of our produce.
What aspect of your farming operation are you most known for? (This could be a particular crop beloved by customers or an uncommon production method that other farmers would appreciate.) *
Carrots, folks love our carrots especially our fall carrots. We have been helping several new farmers understand our stall bed prep for early spring crops. We prepare beds in mid to late August, let the grasses sprout then tarp them until needed in late January to early April for early spring/cool season crops.
What do you appreciate about Certified Naturally Grown?
To me the best part of being certified, CNG is getting to know other farmers and building a network of resources and community.
You may use this space to tell us anything else you think we should know.
