Book launch celebration for Farming on the Wild Side
Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - 7:00pm
Join Nancy and John Hayden to celebrate the launch of their new book, Farming on the Wild Side. Nancy and John run The Farm Between in Jeffersonville. The Haydens have spent the last 25 years transforming their draft horse–powered, organic vegetable and livestock operation into an agroecological, regenerative, biodiverse, organic fruit farm, fruit nursery, and pollinator sanctuary. In Farming on the Wild Side, they explain the philosophical and scientific principles that influenced them as they phased out sheep and potatoes and embraced apples, pears, stone fruits, and a wide variety of uncommon berry crops; turned much of their property into a semi-wild state; and adapted their marketing and sales strategies to the new century.
