Rutgers Cooperative Extension continues its Ultra-Niche Crop Series with the upcoming workshop “Farming Garlic.” This workshop, the sixth class in the Ultra-Niche educational series for farmers seeking new crop opportunities, will be held on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 from 5:30 to 8 p.m., simultaneously in Cape May Court House, Bordentown and Bridgewater, New Jersey.
“Garlic fits well into farm operations selling directly to the consumer and is in high demand locally,” says Jenny Carleo, County Agent, Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Cape May County and the Ultra-Niche Series Project Director.
Ultra-Niche Crops are defined as exceptionally high-value crops that can provide a significant source of income to the farmer while using a minimal amount of land. In this session, farmers will learn how to grow, market and sell garlic and how to make practical decisions on marketing and crop production.
