Gas and Diesel Engines 

April 5th-7th, 2018  

Learn about Engines and Fix your Own!!

This 3 day training is a broad introduction to all gasoline and diesel engines, with the goal of demystifying them. Starting with the parts that make up an engine and the overall theories of how an internal combustion engine works and progressing to identifying parts of actual engines commonly found on a farm and learning maintenance tasks, basic repairs, and troubleshooting theory. There will be classroom discussion and hands-on work with engines. Most work will be done on small simple engines, but connections to larger more complicated engines will be discussed. Work will be done on common diesel tractors and other diesel machinery.

Day 1 will focus on Gas Engines

Day 2 will focus in Diesel Engines 

Day 3 Participants are welcome to bring engines with issues for "show and tell" and the class will work on them.

At the end of this training, participants will be able to identify parts and discuss engines with more confidence. They will leave with the ability to perform basic repair and maintenance tasks correctly on their own engines and machinery

May 14th-19th 

Vermont is one of the leaders in the nationwide boom in micro-distilling. This training brings students into direct contact with a variety of processes involved in building, operating, and working in a distillery and the distilling industry. Lectures, labs, visits from experts, demonstrations, and hands-on experience at distilleries introduce distilling and still design, fermentation, distillery economics, and basic business and marketing skills.

An emphasis is placed on production of high-quality spirits from local ingredients and how to bring these successfully to market. The training also covers such details as licensing, environmental concerns, permits, and reports for the TTB, safety, and quality control. Led by Duncan Holaday, a pioneer in micro-distilling, he is the owner and operator of Dunc's Mill and consults on distillery and still design. Visiting lecturers and distillery visits expose participants to a variety of products, business models and scales, and construction types for distilleries. Each participant will complete and present a project that reflects his or her particular interests and draws from topics covered in the training.

Opportunities for direct observation and hands-on work during the training will be at Dunc's Mill in St. Johnsbury, Shelburne Orchards Distillery in Shelburne, and Hooker Mountain Farm in Cabot, Wild Hart Distillery located in Shelburne, and Mad River Distillery located in Waitsfield. The class will also tour other distilleries in Vermont. Farmers markets have served as a key venue for producers to expand sales of their Vermont made spirits. During the training visits will be made to two different markets to experience this one-on-one marketing first hand.
