NC Cooperative Extension Aquaponics Shortcourse Wed Feb 10, 2016 Today 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM Where:
NC Cooperative Extension DoubleTree by Hilton New Bern - Riverfront
— 3 hours ago

Aquaponic systems are becoming increasingly popular, and more people are finding innovative ways to produce more than one crop in their recirculating systems. Aquaponic systems are recirculating aquaculture systems that incorporate the production of plants without soil. In typical recirculating aquaculture systems, the goal is to produce large quantities of aquatic biomass in small amounts of space and small volumes of water. In such a system, waste products can accumulate if not physically removed or otherwise filtered via mechanical or biological means. The organic buildup and metabolic byproducts can be reused in aquaponic system by a secondary crop; plants. Plants can grow rapidly with dissolved nutrients that are excreted directly by the aquatic species or generated from the microbial breakdown of the animal waste by the various species of bacteria in the system. In closed recirculating systems with very little daily water exchange, dissolved nutrients accumulate in concentrations similar to those in hydroponic nutrient solutions. These dissolved waste nutrients are taken up by the plants, reducing wastewater discharge to the surrounding watershed and allowing for more efficient use of the fish feed.

— 3 weeks away

Registration information is available here:
https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2016-south-atlantic-hops-conference-tickets-19730934757

Organized by: North Carolina State University, Virginia Tech, Virginia State University, and Old Dominion Hops Cooperative

Contact: Jeanine Davis, 828-684-3562, Jeanine_Davis@ncsu.edu

The success of the craft beer industry and interest in using locally grown ingredients has encouraged an adventuresome group of farmers in the South Atlantic region to try their hands at growing hops. Most hops in the United States are produced in the Pacific Northwest where the climate is well suited to the needs of hops plants. Growing hops under the not so ide al conditions in the South Atlantic is challenging. So this conference is designed to bring in experts from across the country to advise this young industry.

The conference will kick off on Friday with commercial hop yard and brewery tours. Saturday will be a full day conference with concurrent sessions on all aspects of growing and selling hops. We have a great line-up of speakers including Ann George, Executive Director of US Hop Growers Association; James Altwies of Gorst Valley Hops; Dan Gridley of Farm Boy Hops; Ken Hurley, beer chemist at Virginia Tech; and Lina Quesada-Ocampo, plant pathologist at NC State University. There will be panel discussions on what brewers want from local growers and buying starter hop plants. Individual presentations will include growing hops in non-traditional areas, how to build a small hop yard, growing and marketing hops on a diversified farm, harvesting hops, processing hops, downy mildew control, beer chemistry, the status of the industr y, new opportunities for hop growers, and updates from North Carolina and Virginia universities on their hops research. It will be a great opportunity to network with brewers and growers at all stages of production .There will be a trade show and lunch will be served.

We have worked hard to make this a very reasonably priced conference. If you register by February 3, you can attend both days for just $80.12! There are also opportunities for exhibitors and sponsors. So check out the detailed information on our Eventbrite page at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2016-south-atlantic-hops-conference-tickets-19730934757 and register today!

Local Food Piedmont Grown's Fifth Annual Conference: Increasing Farm Profitability Through Efficiency, Diversified Markets, & Unique Branding Thu Mar 10, 2016 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM Where:
NC Cooperative Extension Hunt Library, NC State’s Centennial Campus, Raleigh, NC
— 4 weeks away

Contact: Rebecca Dunning, 919-389-2220 or info@piedmontgrown.org

Piedmont Grown, a certification program that identifies and promotes farm products grown, raised, and made in North Carolina’s Piedmont region, is holding its fifth annual conference on Thursday, March 10 from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Hunt Library on NC State’s Centennial Campus, Raleigh. Join farmers, buyers, researchers, and eaters to celebrate local food and support farmers in their goal to grow the Piedmont Grown brand, increase efficiency, and expand sales.

This year's theme is Increasing Farm Profitability Through Efficiency, Diversified Markets and Unique Branding featuring keynote speaker Ben Hartman, author of The Lean Farm. Ben's keynote, "Using the Lean System to Earn a Comfortable Living on a Small Farm" is based on his years of experience on his farm minimizing waste, increasing efficiency, and maximizing value and profits. Ben and his wife, Rachel Hershberger, own and operate Clay Bottom Farm in Goshen, Indiana, where they make a living growing and selling specialty crops on less than an acre. Their food is sold locally to restaurants and cafeterias, at a farmers’ market, and through a community supported agriculture (CSA) program.

“Lean principles” were originally developed by the Japanese automotive industry, and Hartman has applied them to farming. As a result, he’s been able to drastically cut waste, increase profit, and make his family farm more environmentally and economically sustainable. Hartman’s approach of working smarter, not harder, aims to prevent the kind of burnout that start-up farmers often encounter and enable a new generation of young people – as well as seasoned farmers – to maintain and increase profits in small to medium-scale farming.

The conference will feature nine breakout sessions with a dynamic group of speakers including buyers, crop insurance specialists, marketing professionals, and farmers. Our lunch speaker, Sebastian Wolfrum of Epiphany Craft Malt, will explore the growth of the NC spirits industry and opportunities for market farmers to supply ingredients to local breweries, distilleries, and cideries.

​​Conference tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online at http://bit.ly/PiedmontGrown2016Conf

Piedmont Grown’s mission is to promote local food systems through the certification of food and farm products grown or raised in 37 counties in the North Carolina Piedmont Region. We want to link consumers to local farm fresh foods, build local markets for farmers and food entrepreneurs, and grow healthy and prosperous communities.
