Ben and Emily will talk about how they select and modify their equipment to suit their needs and how they keep all of it working smoothly. Learn how they manage their operation with a two-wheel walk behind tractor, a cultivating tractor, and two larger tractors using implements like a mechanical transplanter, disc bedder, chisel plow, rototiller, and side-dresser.

Cost: $25 for OEFFA members, $30 for non-members
