Equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities.
A bumblebee finds nourishment in the flowers of a native milkweed, planted on the farm of Rob and Tammy Faux .
Terry plants diverse crop rotations that include cereal rye, which he harvests to use in several ways. He’ll share his experience making ryelage, rye hay and rye straw. We’ll hear from Terry’s dairy farming neighbors, Josh and Dick Blough, who feed this ryelage to their dairy cattle. We’ll start in the field to view some cover crops before moving indoors for further discussion and a meal.
