Equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities.
Wayne Wangsness shows off the flame-weeder he uses to help control weeds on his organic crop farm near Decorah.
Wool production can be a profitable enterprise with certain niche markets. In this three-part series, Regina will lead us on three tours showing different aspect of her wool operation. Part 1 explores the facilities needed to raise sheep for wool. Building the right fencing and infrastructure for your sheep farm can feel like it’s always evolving. Everything from fencing materials to feed bunk placements can impact your efficiency. Regina will show us how she and her family have adapted their farm to fit their needs. Over the years, they have learned what has and hasn’t worked – and each year they find new ways to improve. (Note: The date may move based on weather).
