FarmHack comes to New Hampshire November 19+20

FarmHack New Hampshire will be the next in our series of all-day events bringing farmers together with inventors, engineers, designers and other specialists, to brainstorm + build together.  This event will focus in on harvesting, handling,  processing, and adding value to farm products.  

On Saturday, November 19th and Sunday, November 20th we will converge in Lee, NH.  First we will see some new tools in action at Tuckaway Farm, and deconstruct some older technologies to get at the heart of engineering ag tools.  Then we will work in teams to develop new project and tool ideas, with the goal of getting some working prototypes on our farms next season.  

More info is here, and RSVP is necessary!
