Chris and Tanya Cubberly will provide us with a tour of their vegetable and flower fields and talk about their fertility program. We will see the compost yard and they will demonstrate their PTO-powered compost turner. Chris and Tanya will share their experiences with crop rotation, cover crops, and tools they use in the field.
Tempel Farms Organics began in 2008 as a division of Tempel Farms’ horse and conventional row-crop operations. Chris and Tanya raise vegetables, fruit, cut flowers, pasture-raised poultry and eggs, and honey and are in the process of transitioning their 65+ acres to certified organic. Their products are sold in the Chicago area through CSA and various markets.
