Northeast SARE Ag Innovations
Winter Storage Options for the Northeast
To help farmers in the Philadelphia area learn about various winter storage options, the nonprofit Fair Food conducted site visits of well-established winter storage operations in Pennsylvania, Vermont and Quebec. Project participants also created a collection of existing resources on winter storage, including construction case studies and detailed information about individual vegetables’ storage needs.
