Crop Mob: Fifth Estate Growers

Date/Time: 
Friday, April 21, 2017 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm
Venue: 
Fifth Estate Growers

Fifth Estate is about 30 minutes from State College. Fifth Estate Growers produces switchgrass bales that are used by organic growers for mulch around vegetables and berries. They use no chemicals in their production and are in Pennsylvania Certified Organic's (PCO) "Transition Program".

Each spring after baling we hand collect and stack these bales on pallets for transport to our barn. Volunteers would help with that collection and stacking.
