Tools and Equipment For Market Gardeners and Farmers / Las herramientas y equipos para jardineros y agricultores del mercado

Small, diversified farms are labor intensive by nature. Managing dozens of different crops in fields and greenhouses can become expensive and inefficient. The right set of tools can provide the vision and precision to maintain a healthy, productive farm ecosystem. We will explore a broad range of innovative tools to ground your operation and ways to identify or create the right sequence of tools for your farming system. Longtime farmer David designs and builds top-of-the-line wheel hoes and broadforks. He will show his brand new Mid Fork (between a broadfork and a digging fork) and an electric wheel hoe. Josh, small farmer, columnist for Growing for Market and author of "Compact Farms: 15 Proven Plans for Market Farms on 5 Acres or Less” will detail new developments of equipment used on small farms, based on his inventions and visits and interviews with dozens of US small farmers. Jack works with Slow Tools, Johnny’s and other equipment creators to invent and modify tools for his 6-acre vegetable field and ¾ acre greenhouse.

Las granjas pequeñas y diversificadas por naturaleza son intensivas en la mano de obra. La gestión de decenas de diferentes cultivos en campos e invernaderos pueden resultar costosos e ineficaces. El conjunto adecuado de herramientas puede proporcionar la visión y la precisión para mantener un ecosistema productivo y saludable. Exploraremos una amplia gama de herramientas innovadoras para fundamentar su funcionamiento y formas de identificar o crear la secuencia correcta de herramientas para su sistema de cultivo. David, un granjero veterano diseña y construye azadones de rueda & horquillas de superior calidad. Él mostrará su nuevo ‘Mid Fork’ (entre una horquilla ancha y una horquilla de excavación) y un azadón de rueda eléctrico. Josh, es un granjero, columnista de Growing for Market, y autor de “Compact Farms: 15 Proven Plans for Market Farms on 5 Acres or Less.” Él nos hablara sobre el desarrollo de herramientas nuevas para granjas pequeñas, sus invenciones, y entrevistas con decenas de granjeros por el país. Jack trabaja con "Slow Tools", "Johnny's" & otros creadores de equipos para inventar y modificar herramientas para su campo de verduras de 6 acres y un invernadero de ¾ de un acre.
