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.
Dayna Burtness has been raising pastured pigs since 2015 at Nettle Valley Farm in southeast Minnesota. In this farminar, she will ask Steve Deibele, an experienced pig farmer, her top five questions around finishing pigs on pasture. Steve owns Golden Bear Farm in Kiel, Wisconsin, and has 20 years of experience. Both farms are in similar climate zones, and the farmers will discuss planting and feeding perennial and annual forages. Tune in to join Dayna and Steve on this dive into pasture-finishing!
