On Thursday, July 26th, we'll tour Humble Hands Harvest and learn what machinery they use to get the job done. Hannah will show the inner and outer workings of her small tractor, we'll look at some other small engines and human-powered tools for farm work, and will talk about ergonomics and how to use our bodies hard without breaking them!
Humble Hands Harvest is a 2-acre organic vegetable farm operated by Hannah Breckbill and Emily Fagan. The farm sells to local restaurants, at farmers markets, and through a CSA program. Hannah has been farming since 2009 and started Humble Hands Harvest in 2013; Emily joined the farm in 2017, when Hannah bought bare land to develop into a diversified farm from the ground up. They’re developing a perennial polyculture system, integrating nut and fruit crops and livestock, as well as their cornerstone of organic vegetables.
This event is made possible in part through a generous grant from the USDA's Risk Management Agency.
The farm is just northeast of Decorah, Iowa. From Canoe Ridge Road, take Hidden Falls Road all the way to the end of that lane. Then you'll see the farm!
This is a partnered event with In Her Boots and MOSES. Registration is not yet available, but if you RSVP below, we will send you a message as soon as In Her Boots has their registration page up and running. Thank you!
