High Meadows Farm, N6967 South Lane, Johnson Creek, WI 53038
You’re invited to a pasture walk at High Meadows CSA Farm to learn how these experienced farmers used the NRCS EQIP cost share funds to help in their vegetable production and have now re engaged with the NRCS to transition to a portion of the farm to rotational grazing as their farming method is changing. Mike and Meg Kelly have recently received funding to cost share pasture establishment, fencing and waterlines and are exploring silvopasture options for their expanding sheep flock.
Meet other silvopasture experts and bring your questions!
A warm invite to beginning farmers and new landowners interested in conservation resources. Event is free to attend. Snacks will be served. Registration appreciated but walk-ups welcome. Event will follow current COVID-10 protocols.
