Join us for this one-day storage focused event, where speakers from across the Northeast and Midwest will be presenting on challenges and updates surrounding vegetable storage! On December 8th we'll be focused on smaller-scale storage of mixed vegetables, and hear talks on storage construction and management, tactics for better storage, and disease control on a smaller scale. We'll hear presentations on funding opportunities, farm food safety considerations for storage, and grower opportunities with the NYS Farm to School program. We invite you to join in as you can.
This event will be held virtually over Zoom and pre-registration is required. Only those who pre-register will receive meeting attendance information. To register, or if you have any questions about this event, please email Margie Lund at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the name(s), phone number, and email of those who plan to attend.

Using proper storage methods, crops harvested in the fall can be stored in bins or bulk piles for 2-12 months depending on the crop. This guide helps growers plan, design, specify equipment, and operate a cold storage facility tailored to their specific requirements.
