Equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities.
Margaret Smith and Doug Alert, of Ash Grove Farm, discuss organic crop production and cover crops at a field day they hosted.
Susan will share her tips and tricks for raising poultry rotationally on pasture. We’ll see her setup for raising Thanksgiving turkeys, and Susan will discuss how she has started the process of incorporating silvopasture into her system. The day will conclude with a marketing discussion about using home delivery to sell eggs. Guests are invited to stay for the ice cream social afterwards.
