Farmstead Planning Twilight Meeting

UNH Cooperative Extension is offering a Farmstead Planning Twilight Meeting on Monday April 18, 6 -8 pm at Riverslea Farm (362 North River Road, Epping NH, off Route 125).

Farmstead planning involves having an overall master plan and then placing buildings on the farm property so they won’t be in the way of future structures and will be located for efficient operation. The basic concepts include: siting buildings, traffic flow, environmental concerns, separating business and personal space, dealing with vehicle and people traffic, allowing for materials handling, etc.

This twilight meeting is a part of a series of agricultural engineering twilight meetings with John Porter, UNH Extension Professor, Emeritus and Stan Weeks, consultant from New York.  Stan is an agricultural engineer who has had a lot of experience in farmstead layout. He is contracted on a regular basis by UNH Cooperative Extension through the Andrew C. and Margaret R. Sigler Foundation. This series is conducted in cooperation with UNH Cooperative Extension and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).
