On-Farm Workshop Two-wheel Tractor Safety & Operation

October 16, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

$20

Get hands-on training with the BCS walk-behind tractor and hear from growers who have integrated this equipment into their production plan. 

Two-wheel, walk-behind tractors have become a powerful tool of choice for many small scale growers! Join us at The Seed Farm in Lehigh County where Farm Manager Neil Singh and Pasa’s Diversified Vegetable Pre-Apprenticeship Program Associate Lisa Miskelly will discuss and demonstrate the uses, basic maintenance, and safe operation of this versatile tool. 

We’ll review attachments including the flail mower, rotary plow, rototiller, and sickle bar. Then it’s your turn! You’ll get ample opportunity for supervised hands-on practice. We will also hear from growers Emily Stocker and Dean Buttacavoli of Cabbage Throw Farm, who use a two-wheel tractor as an integral part of their minimum tillage operation. Cabbage Throw Farm is a one-and-half-acre organic market garden located in New Jersey’s fertile Musconetcong River Valley.
