Judi Radel and her family operate a diversified 160 acre farm in Duncannon, PA (YeeHaw Farm) with a real zeal for farming. They milk dairy cows from which they make their own butter. They have dairy and meat goats, dairy and meat sheep, broiler chickens, laying hens, hogs, Hereford beef cattle, geese, turkeys, miniature donkeys, farm cats, 3 large farm dogs and a little Boston Terrier.
Nestled at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains, the farm surrounds a beautiful 3 acre pond. The Radel Family have created their summer quarters next to the pond with a cottage on stilts, a home-made house boat and an outdoor kitchen and living room. It is a beautiful place to relax after a busy day on the farm. And busy they are!
The Radel Family grow wheat that they grind into flour. From the flour they make bread and whole wheat soft pretzels. They have a portable saw mill that they use to harvest the woodlot and build new structures as needed. Judi will guide us on a tour of their farm and describe their marketing methods. She will explain the Whole Diet CSA (Community Supported Agriculture Program) that includes meat products, dairy products, produce, eggs, honey, goat's milk soaps and baked goods. Judi even grew peanuts this year and is looking to expand this crop for next year. So look for boiled peanuts in the mix!
We will discuss the challenges and benefits to this style of CSA marketing and how to identify and reach potential customers.
The $15.00 registration fee includes lunch and materials.
