Whats Happen At Country Taste Farm

January the month of acquiring More Knowledge :
This Month we spent 5 days in Classrooms and Conferences, around the state. Minnesota Organic Conference, Minnesota Fruit & Vegetable Association Conference and Central Lakes College Specialty Crop Management Course. 

My Professor at CLC had a very interesting Statement "Its not Rocket Science" its Harder, Comparing Rocket Science to Fruit and Vegetable Production.

Rocket Science: 
  • Uses Precise mathematical equations
  • Can control all variables
  • Fun if you enjoy math and precise outcomes
Fruit and Vegetable Production
  • Uses best available knowledge on plant physiology
  • Can Control some water, most nutrients, some temperature.
  • Fun if you don't mind surprises and realizing that you will never know it all.
Well we received a great deal of  new useful information which i will be putting some of it in use this coming Season.
