More Pictures from the Berry Workshop

The Columbia Missourian, one of the two local newspapers in town, ran a short article with lots of beautiful pictures from the Beginning Farmer Workshop on Berry Options.

COLUMBIA — With berry season in full swing, the Beginning Farmer Program sponsored a workshop on berry growing and marketing Tuesday and Wednesday. The workshop included lectures held at MU's Bradford Farm, in-the-field tasting and exploration at Jefferson Farm and Gardens and a visit to Pick and Pick, a private U-Pick berry farm in Columbia.

Below are some additional photos I took.  If you weren't able to make it to the Berry Options Workshop, the powerpoints and handout materials will be linked to the Missouri Beginning Farmers website soon.  Be on the lookout on this blog for the announcement of when the information is uploaded and ready.
