ALLENTOWN, Pa. — Penn State Extension will present an annual one-day intensive workshop for experienced organic vegetable producers 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 12, at Tompkins College Center, 100 College Drive, Allentown.

This year’s topic is farm profitability, an in-depth look at profitable farms with different marketing models. Expert farmer presentation and discussion will focus on factors contributing to farm profitability, including labor management, marketing, production efficiencies, infrastructure and equipment.

Speakers include Jim Crawford, New Morning Farm; Paul and Sandy Arnold, Pleasant Valley Farm; and Mark and Judy Dornstreich, Branch Creek Farm.

Due to the limited number of opportunities for experienced organic vegetable growers this workshop will be open first to more experienced growers. To apply, visit extension.psu.edu/vegetable-fruit or contact Tianna DuPont at tdupont<\@>psu.edu or 610-746-1970.
