Since 2021, Ken has been developing a medium-scale production system for organic potatoes that requires no in-season hilling or weeding. Using winter rye as a cover crop, he is now in the third year of testing the system with some success.  Field days are a great way to check out Ken’s innovations in person, and pick his brain about all things vegetable growing. You can learn more about his no-till systems here.
