Dinner on the Farm - June 30th LSP Field Day -Aug 3, 3-6 pm
We are very excited to once again be hosting a farm to table
dinner here at Little Foot. We had such a great time hosting last
year's OTIF dinner, that when Chad from Heartland asked if we would host
a Dinner on the Farm event, we immediately said YES!. The dinner is
scheduled for June 30th. For more info on Dinner
on the Farm go to... SOLD OUT
Land Stewardship Project Field Day August 3, 3-6pm During the field day and potluck at Little Foot Farm and Greenhouse near Afton, MN on Saturday August 3rd starting at 3pm, you'll have a chance to learn and discuss how to incorporate smaller scale livestock operations into other farming enterprises. Karen Weiss and Sally Doherty have a hog and sheep operation along with other farming enterprises. They will be sharing their practical ideas around housing, grazing, fencing, feeds, marketing and whatever else you have questions about. There will be plenty of time for good conversations.
We have had a number of requests from beginning farmers who are predominately growing vegetables to hold a field day at a farm doing smaller scale livestock production; we hope you'll take advantage of Karen and Sally's generosity in opening up their farm and their willingness to share their knowledge and experience. And if you are interested in livestock being the main focus of your farming, you will gain from attending this event.
Remember the field day starts at 3pm Saturday August 3rd, with a pot luck meal following. email@example.com@landstewardshipproject.org
Cheers to all those who helped make OITF at Little Foot a huge success. A special Thank You to Julie Brown for all the wonderful photos!
