PFI Field Day - Pumpkins and Produce in One Multi-Purpose Space

06/21/2019 at 1:00 PM
Algona, Iowa

Growing and expanding while staying small-scale is possible when farmers can lean on guidance and help from family members, mentors and friends. Beany and Joanne Bode will share their experience designing and building a new multi-purpose packhouse and prep space. They will also discuss weed management strategies they’ve tried in their 10-acre pumpkin patch. The Bodes will be joined by neighbors and farm mentors John and Helen Scuffham, who introduced them to the wholesale pumpkin business and the growing and marketing techniques involved.
