We are in harvest at Mt. Folly and the Mercantile, with our hay made, silage chopped, and some of our hemp in the barn. A cover crop of organic rye and hairy vetch is going on the hemp fields, tillage radish and rye on the silage corn field, so they will not be bare.
This is principal #1 of soil health – keep the crop ground covered. To learn more about why I’m so determined to farm this way and what it means for all of us, visit Mt. Folly Farm.
Indeed, I want to use this letter to send you an invitation!
If you are a farmer or landowner, and want to know more about organics, soil health and hemp, come to Mt. Folly Farm on September 28th for an agricultural presentation. Find more details here.
If you are a generalist, the Hemp Harvest Festival this year is in downtown Winchester, Kentucky on October 4th, starting with a kick-off dinner benefiting the Bluegrass Heritage Museum. A festival and street fair will follow on Saturday, October 5th. It is going to be fun.
Laura’s Homestead Alternatives is a major sponsor of the Hemp Harvest Festival, and I’ll be speaking at Leeds Theater at 1:00pm on The Future of Hemp.
Then, I’ll be at our booth all afternoon to answer questions, learn from you, and point you in the direction of Wildcat Willy’s Distillery, opening before Thanksgiving. (It must open, as I’m having our family party there Thanksgiving afternoon!)
