Natural Roots Farm relies exclusively on horse-power to run a 200-member CSA and to harvest hay and timber. Participants will see live horse-power demonstrations on a variety of traditional and recently innovated horse-drawn implements and will learn how these practices are used in the farm’s vegetable production systems. 

Instructor: David Fisher runs a 200-member horse-powered CSA and has been farming for 15 years.

This workshop is one in a series of workshops on raising animals. To view additional offerings, click here.
