Greetings from the Farm Team,The Farm recently welcomed visitors from Agrario Macerata, Italy’s oldest agriculture vocational school. It’s located in Marche region (central Adriatic coast) and is one of Italy’s major agricultural regions, and Europe’s major organic farming regions. The school and its 12 affiliated agriculture schools have developed extensive programs in Italy for teaching farming and growing modern farmers. They have land for produce, forest, gardens, wine grapes, olive, and raising animals etc. 
 
The objective of the visit was to understand our Farm model, programs and how we’re intertwined into our local community. In the spirit of learning on both sides, the conversation revolved around sharing how we’re each approaching challenges such as climate change, shifting policy agendas, building community and the challenge it is to keep small, diversified farms like Willowsford Farm moving forward. The Farm team greatly appreciated the conversation and hopes to see more visits from the organization in the future.

New items this week: Green bell peppers, uncured white onions, bulk beets, cherry tomatoes, & parsley.

Happy Eating,
– The Willowsford Farm Team
