Seasonal On-Farm Events and Winter Workshops and
Pasture walks are one of the very best ways for experienced or beginning farmers and agricultural service providers to learn from one another. Each host farmer has tricks and tips for managing their own systems to its best advantage. Often service providers, such as USDA-NRCS field agents or grazing consultants can add new information, review grazing or animal health concepts, share ideas gathered from outside sources, and learn along with everyone else. Sometimes there are challenges on the farm, which visitors can help problem solve with a new perspective on the situation. Pasture walks help connect all ages, interests and experience levels to one another.
