Farmer-to-Farmer Resource: New For You

New Wikipedia-Like Resource for Organic Farmers

Share your knowledge and experience with other farmers. Tilth Producers is looking for articles written by farmers to share as the foundation for a brand new Wiki focused on organic and sustainable farming practices.

The Tilth Producers Wiki mirrors Wikipedia as a free-access, free content encyclopedia-like database.

By using a mix of research-based articles, farmer anecdotes, tips and methods about farming, this Wiki provides a platform for the exchange of information.

So put that pen to paper and join the interactive community of farmers, researchers, academics and advocates. Tilth Producers especially seeks Wiki submissions from farmers about these topics:

  • Cider apple production
  • Cover crops
  • Crop planning
  • Curriculum for intern programs
  • Livestock processing
  • Marketing through food hubs
  • Pest management strategies for vegetables
  • Postharvest handling
    • Poultry profitability
  • Promoting pollinator habitat
  • Pruning techniques for tree and cane fruits
  • Soil fertility

Like Wikipedia, when you author articles for the Tilth Producers Wiki they may be edited and commented on by other users. By allowing farmers to add their ‘two cents,’ Tilth Producers aims to build an invaluable collection of knowledge to benefit our farmer community. We look forward to hearing from you.
