Farming in a Changing Landscape: A Dialogue About Local Food Systems

April 4, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


About this event from thegrangehall.info

“The pandemic and its aftermath brought tremendous changes and new pressures to independent farms in and around the Adirondack region. Rising costs, scarce labor, and shifting demographics and land ownership patterns are changing the ways farms work in the North Country. Climate change has added another layer of risk to agriculture, everywhere. Across the nation and around the world, consolidation of the production, processing, transportation and distribution of food is accelerating. What does all this change mean for the array of family-sized farms that produce direct-to-consumer whole food for our communities? What new challenges are on the horizon, and what opportunities do these changes present? What do we want from our unique foodshed and agricultural landscape, and how can we work together to shape them?

Kristin Kimball will lead a panel discussion with Racey Henderson, Reber Rock Farm, Ian Ater, Fledging Crow Farm, and David Brunner and Rhonda Butler, Asgaard Farm

Kristin Kimball co-owns and farms at Essex Farm, a full-diet, year-round CSA founded in 2003. She’s the author of two books about her life as a farmer, The Dirty Life and Good Husbandry.
