Barr Farms has raised livestock and Certified Organic mixed vegetables on a fragipan (shallow soil) in the Ohio River Valley for 13 years. In response to increasing climate challenges – heavy rain events, high humidity all year, wetter than normal summers, and the possibility of droughts in the fall – Adam and Rae have implemented several mitigating systems.


Learn about their use of rye grass and cover crops, biochar, drainage and other adaptations to increase farm resiliency. Join in a discussion of the pros and cons of various strategies for farming successfully in a changing climate. Q&A with Adam will follow the live presentation.


Open to all and FREE to attend.  Registration is required and will generate an immediate confirmation email.  A reminder email with Zoom link for live access will be emailed within a week prior to the event - mark your calendar!
