CROFTON, Ky. — Operating a dual organic and conventional farming system, Durham Farms has increased its organic acreage from 60 acres to 1600 acres in the past 6 years. Visit their fields in production to learn their systems for organic corn, soybean, and hemp production.
Tyler Durham will share his experience with transitioning acreage to certified organic production, advantages to using cover crops, seed varieties of choice (including two CBD hemp), equipment for weed control, and the benefits of having a strong network of fellow farmers.
This OAK Field Day is geared towards large-scale producers in transition or interested in the possibility. Pre-registration is required at oak-ky.org/field-days or 502-517-9629.
