The Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York is hosting a field day from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Nov. 1 at 9664 Starr Hill Road, Remsen, N.Y. It is a chance to tour the newly certified organic Simons family farm with Ben and Robin Simons. Participants can hear the trials and tribulations of transitioning a dairy herd and getting their questions answered about organic dairy management, pasture management and the record keeping process. The registration fee is $10 a person or $15 for 2 or more people per farm.
The deadline is Oct. 30, and walk-ins are welcome
