Managing risk is a critical decision for any farm business. An upcoming field day in Polk County will give producers the chance to learn more about the new Whole-Farm Revenue Protection (WFRP) crop insurance program as a risk management tool, especially suited for diversified crop and livestock producers.
The event will be held Saturday, August 1, from 10:00 AM to Noon, at New Family Farm, 12850 NE 64th St., Elkhart. The morning will feature a presentation by Jeff Schahczenski, Agriculture Policy and Funding Research Director for the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT). Producer Tony Thompson, owner/manager of New Family Farm, will also lead the group on a walking tour of his farm. Light refreshments will be provided.
