Irrigation Systems and Management at Warner Farm

July 13, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Register here! 

Warner Farm, a CSA and wholesale farm as well as the home of Mike’s Corn Maze, located in Sunderland, MA, has been developing its irrigation capacity since the late 1970s. The farm’s rich sandy loam has been growing fruit and vegetable crops for centuries and as a changing climate brings changing precipitation patterns to New England, Warner Farm is poised to respond effectively in times of drought.

Join CISA, UMass Extension, and Dave Wissemann of Warner Farm on July 13th at 4:00pm for an up close look at how they are optimizing their water resources and water distribution systems to ensure the sustainable production of crops throughout the season and in the face of increasingly uncertain growing conditions. The workshop includes a farm walk to see irrigation equipment and a detailed explanation of how the farm’s systems are designed and maintained. Following the farm walk, join us for further discussion and some locally made drinks and snacks. 

This workshop and networking event is part of the 2023 Adapt Your Farm to Climate Change Webinar and Workshop Series: On-farm Climate Change Adaptation Case Studies from Western Massachusetts.

Location: Warner Farm, 23 S Main St, Sunderland, MA 01375

Contact Stephen Taranto at or 413-665-7100 ext. 17 with any questions.

This work is supported by the Beginning Farmer and Ranger Development Program grant no. 2020-70017-32420 from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
