Farm Planning and Design

This course introduces the student to the methodologies of farm planning and design. Topics span the planning and decision-making necessary from pre-planting to market as they relate to the fundamentals of length of growing season, soil-plant relationships, farm microclimates, the layout of buildings, allocation of site uses, crop planning, species selection and both short-term and long-term farm visioning. The design of a farm will be understood as a process that is very important to the sustainability of any farm venture, economically and environmentally.
