OSA’s Micaela Colley and Laurie McKenzie will lead demonstrations of both small equipment and hand scale threshing and cleaning, including the use of an Almaco small belt thresher and Clipper air-screen seed cleaner (now available for rent to regional growers through Greenbank Farm). The workshop will cover a wide range of vegetable crops and discussion on how regional growers can most effectively harvest and clean their seed crops at a range of scales.
