Farm Story Tour Moving the Farm: Land Transition at Root Mass

June 22, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Kick off your summer with a twilight tour of Root Mass Farm, and learn about the challenges and delights of moving an established farm business to new land. 

Earlier this spring, after 11 years farming on leased land, Lindsey Shapiro and Landon Jeffries moved their farm (and family) 10 miles up the road to put down roots in Bally, Pennsylvania. 

They’ll show us around the farm’s new home and share their story. We’ll discuss the ins and outs of a farm transition: from where to start—finding land, communicating with current owners, and working with lenders—to what to do when you get there, including creative ways to tackle infrastructure challenges and adapt management practices to new soil and terrain.

Bring your questions and comfortable walking shoes, and save room for dessert! We’ll end the night with a celebration of the summer solstice, sharing pie from the bakery at nearby Frecon Farms and ice cream from Longacre’s Dairy, a Berks County institution.
