Twilight Meeting - Wholesale Organic Vegetable Production and Nutrient Management

May 20th, 4-7 pm, Foote Brook Farm, Johnson VT

Tony Lehouillier has been growing organic vegetables for 13 years at his family farm, located on Route 15, one mile west of the town of Johnson. He currently produces 40 acres of mixed vegetables on 70 acres of land in rotation with cover crops. Some of his main crops are peppers, potatoes, pumpkins, squash, and kale. There are also several greenhouses for production of transplants and greenhouse tomatoes.

A nutrient management plan has been developed for the farm as part of an NRCS EQIP program that Tony is enrolled in. Karen Hills at UVM has helped develop spread sheets to help with nutrient management planning and these will be discussed, as well as the use of organic fertilizers, weed control equipment, and pest control on the farm.
