Getting Good Advice

At the recently held Mid-Atlantic Fruit & Vegetable Convention Farmer John stopped to talk with the reps from Martin’s Produce Supply. Keeping up to date on growing medium, trays and irrigation equipment will help to get a good start on seedlings that will become the vegetables to be sold on the Lock Farm and in the Lock Farm’s MEALS TO FIELDS program.

Farmer John Keeps Up To Date

Farmer Johjn at ConventionFarmer John attended the 2016 Mid-Atlantic Fruit and Vegetable Convention held in Hershey, Pennsylvania. There he heard the latest in biocontrol pest management for greenhouses, high tunnels and field crops. Season Long Lettuce Production was another topic about which he gained valuable information. He also took advantage of getting a first hand look at offerings from the many vendors present.
All of this timely information will be valuable as Farmer John prepares for the Lock Farm’s FIELDS TO MEALS Farm Share program.
