Finland Farmer tour and pictures


I had the opportunity to help plan part of a tour for a group of farmers from Finland, who arrived in late October. Ginseng, a digester, cover crops, crop rotations and GMO’s were great topics of interest and generated plenty of questions by the 15 Finns. Getting around the construction site of a new digester on a cold, muddy day posed some challenges, particularly for the un-named guy on crutches 😉 Thanks to our gracious hosts, Bill Chesney and Gord & Laura Green, who took time out of a busy harvest to talk to the group about their operations, and to provide coffee and goodies too!
