SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE

Management Intensive Grazing (MIG) divides a pasture into paddocks where animals graze in controlled rotations, resulting in better health for livestock, time and money saved for the farmer, and better protection of our lakes and rivers.  Find out more!

Pasture walks are an on-farm learning opportunity, where managed grazers share what they have learned about equipment, methods, and cost-sharing.

No-till farming helps the environment by reducing soil erosion, but it also helps your crops by increasing nutrient retention and water infiltration. For help finding equipment to use for interseeding thin pastures and converting hayland to pasture, click for rental resources.

The Stevens Point Area Neighborhood Gardens (SPANG) improve access to fresh, nutritious produce while also creating a place to network and build community.  Find out more!
