The FIG Farm seeks to provide the necessary resources for aspiring, landless farmers to start their farm enterprise, by providing low-cost land leases for vegetable, cut flower, herb, and pasture-based animal farm ventures as well as a shared equipment pool and mentorship opportunities for beginning farmers. The new FIG Farm is located in the heart of Valle Crucis, on the site of the former ASU Teaching & Research Farm, on land owned by the Valle Crucis Conference Center.
The pig pickin fundraiser will be held at the FIG Farm and will feature Tamsworth hogs, winter squash, salad greens, potatoes, cooking greens all grown by FIG Farmers and mentors. They will also have music and beer for those who just may not want to indulge in the pig pickin. Suggested donation price of $20 per person for food and $5 for beer.
