Talking about soil health may not be the most exciting way to spend an afternoon for many, but it is providing useful information for farmers to improve their operations. In collaboration with the Natural Resources Conservation Service and Peninsula Pride Farms, the Door-Kewaunee Watershed Demonstration Farm Network has hosted a number of field days for area farmers to learn about new techniques to handle soil erosion and control phosphorus run-off. Attendance has been high at the field days, which is something Peninsula Pride Farms President Don Niles is happy to see.
Farmers will be able to get an update on the recently installed tile line bark bed filter at Kinnard Farms in Casco this Thursday from 1-3 p.m.
