greenhorns, if you're interested in animal power on your farm - this is the event for you.  Coming soon!

Northeast Animal Power Field Days
Our 4th Annual Event takes place October 15-17 2010 - only 23 days away! NEAPFD has become a clearing-house for educational and operational resources, building networks and sharing experiences around the many aspects of draft animal-power, sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, and local food systems. It is a grass roots event made possible by countless volunteer hours and contributions by our many sponsors, exhibitors, advertisers, and our membership. Please visit our website for more information: www.animalpowerfielddays.org.

We have added some activities and speakers to our program that did not make it in the Program/Resource Booklet, and want to let you know about them. This includes scheduled activities and workshop presenters.

Scheduled Activities:

On Friday evening, October 15th, there will be an Open-mic starting at 7pm - Storytelling, music, poetry, etc. will be shared by many including teamsters such as Lynn Miller, Jay Bailey, Howard Van Ord, Carl Russell, and many others. Come with something to share or sit and relax and enjoy an evening of prose and legendary tales.
