Jensen 1 1 768x432How do you covert row crop land to perennial crops and pasture? Beginning farmers Eric and Courtney Jensen are continuing to explore this question. After converting 15 acres of row crop ground to diverse annual vegetables and pasture five years ago, they are now planting chestnuts and other trees to create a silvopasture system on their farm.

We’ll see how Eric and Courtney have integrated livestock alongside their diverse vegetable enterprise and budding chestnut orchard. They will give a hands-on demonstration of establishing chestnut seedlings and fencing for pasture-raised sheep. The farm includes chickens, asparagus, garlic and elderberries, and the Jensens hope to expand by adding heritage-breed pigs, as well as ducks for both meat and eggs.
