Want to take your specialty crop seed processing and handling skills to the next level? Join us for a hands-on training that includes a demonstration of seed cleaning, processing, and handling. Demonstrations will include low-tech, hands-on techniques as well as small-scale seed cleaning equipment. A number of vegetable seed crops will be the focus of this two-hour training. Participants are invited to bring small quantities of their uncleaned seed crops to request technical advice from course instructors and other participants.
About the location: Good Egg Farm is located 10 miles west of Ronan, in the Moiese Valley and on the Flathead Indian Reservation. The farm sits on a windy bluff looking out over the Flathead River to the west, with a view of the Mission Mountains to the east. They are longtime egg producers transitioning to vegetable and seed production. They now offer seed of useful varieties of vegetables through the Triple Divide Organic Seeds Cooperative.
This workshop is made possible thanks to a grant awarded through the Montana Department of Agriculture’s Specialty Crop Block Grant Program.RSVP Now
