Join us for a Land Stewardship Project Farm Beginnings field day focused on land access on Sunday, Sept. 29, from 1 p.m.-4 p.m., at Humble Hands Harvest (2741 Hidden Falls Rd, Decorah, IA). This is a great networking opportunity for land seekers and land owners!
Beginning Farmers: learn about cooperative land ownership and cooperative farming — a creative way of accessing land.
Landowners/Retiring Farmers/Community Members: hear how one community group rallied together to buy land to prevent it from being bought and transitioned into a factory farm.
Hannah Breckbill and Emily Fagan will talk about their journey to acquire land and start the cooperative. Steve McCargar will talk about the LLC that bought the land that now is home to Humble Hands Harvest.
