SIFT Newsletter Archives

Published every month, the Sift e-newsletter is a Web digest of the SIFT (Small-Scale Intensive Farm Training program) demonstration farm on five acres at our Butte, Montana, headquarters. This farm serves as the backdrop for an intensive, hands-on training program that teaches farmers and future farmers, urban food producers, community leaders, and citizens how to commercially produce high-value, nutrient-rich food on small parcels of land.
