New Grange gathers Catskills area farmers one night a month for unscripted social, political, and practical engagements. There are how-tos and a little rabble-rousing. Shop talk. Beer. Farmer things. We’re calling it New Grange because we don’t need to reinvent the wheel.
New Grange is organized by The National Young Farmers Coalition: Catskill chapter and is open to all farmers, farm workers, farm enthusiasts and activists. For more information about the National Young Farmer’s coalition please visit them on Facebook or on the web.
