Farminars are Practical Farmers' version of a webinar. These 90-minute online seminars are free and produced to help farmers learn about business and production issues that matter to them from the convenience of their homes.
The next live farminar begins at 7 p.m. CST on Nov. 21.
“Achieving Profitability with Fruits and Vegetables” – Natasha Hegmann, Turkey River Farm, Elkport; Ryan Pesch, Lida Farm, Pelican Rapids, MN
Farminars are held weekly each Tuesday during the fall and winter months, and run from 7–8:30 p.m. CST. Most farminars are led by farmers, and many are presented in a “fish-bowl” format where attendees listen as an experienced farmer answers a beginning farmer’s questions. Farminars air live online and allow participants to ask questions of presenters in real-time.
