September 17th - BCS Workshop
Want to learn more about BCS tractors and how you can incorporate (and maintain) them on your small farm? Join us for this hands-on workshop!

Otus Branch Farm is owned and run by Richard Boylan and Amy Love. Richard began growing garlic in the North Carolina High Country in 2002. Although the farm has experimented with nearly twenty different varieties over the years, they have gradually culled-out the lesser performers for this region. The five varieties that they presently grow have all adapted extremely well to the NC High Country (the cooler end of USDA Zone 6, at roughly 3,100’ elevation) during cool, warm, wet, and dry years alike. Having sent garlic to friends and buyers in environments as diverse as eastern Massachusetts, northern New Jersey, the foothills of NC, and Central New York, they can say with some confidence that with proper care, these varieties of garlic can perform well in USDA Zones 4-7.

Otus Branch Farm has a long history of using BCS tractors on their small farm and have several implements to demonstrate during the workshop, including a tiller, sickle bar, potato plow, wood chipper, brush hog, and flail mower. During this workshop, Richard will share the relative advantages and disadvantages of a small farm employing two wheel tractors in addition to or instead of four wheel tractors and discuss how Otus Branch uses their BCS, keeping it in operation, from year-to-year.
