Carol will discuss diversifying a farm business and participating in cooperative ventures to further the farm's mission and goals. The group will share a potluck supper following the activities.For more details on Catskills CRAFT and monthly farm visits, contact Eleanor Blakeslee-Drain (607) 267-0184.
