2022 Upcoming Events

We will continue to host pasture walks in 2022 with COVID safety precautions in place.  Our events will be shorter, outside, and there will be plenty of hand sanitizer.  We will be sure to utilize fence posts to measure and maintain proper social distancing.  Please be advised that attending events is done at your own risk and comfort, and events may be cancelled if necessary.

Reach out to our grazing team if you have any questions.

We would like to thank our farm hosts and collaborating partners for making these events possible!
