Harvesting RI Season Three!
Starting in July, four more RI Farm Bureau member farms will be featured in two new episodes of Harvesting RI. In Episode 1, Executive Producer
Alex Caserta takes us to Wright's Dairy Farm in North Smithfield and EMMA Acres in Exeter to explore two different methods farmers are utilizing to market their milk in Rhode Island.
Episode 2 brings us to Blackbird Farm in Smithfield where the Bouthillette family
raises Purebred Angus and Berskshire hogs, and then drops us down to North Kingstown where the Greniers operate Narrow Lane Orchards.
Episodes 1 and 2 will be run back to back at the following times. Set your DVR or mark it on the calendar. Harvesting RI is a wonderful way to catch some beautiful

A FARMER'S GUIDE TO THE PROVISIONS
OF THE RHODE ISLAND GENERAL LAWS
This compilation, issued by the RI Farm Bureau, is designed to be a guide for farmers to the maze of
Rhode Island General Laws specific to agriculture. It does not make the maze simpler. It just enables finding where specific issues are located
within the maze. Its purpose is to help farmers be more efficient in finding the provisions of law that apply to their operations.
Our 2018 Scholarship forms

RIFB is looking for some great photos of our member farms to use on the website or in
promotional emails. If you have a photo (or two or three) of your farm, would you be willing to share them with us? Your farm from a drone,
sunsets or sunrise over your fields, produce or livestock, family working together (remember... only photos showing safe practices, please),
anything you'd be pleased to see on another Farm Bureau's site or on FB or Instagram. Please make sure you either took the photo or have
permission to share. Send your pictures to email@example.com.
