Organic Dairy Transition: Developing a Grazing System
Monday, July 31, 2017 - 10:00am to 2:00pm
Molly Brook Farm began their transition to organic in January of this year. The past two years Rhonda and Miles Goodrich have been building and developing their grazing system; as part of this they had to seed and convert their corn fields to pasture. In this workshop, we will tour their pastures with grazing consultant Sarah Flack and UVM Agronomist Dr. Heather Darby; discussing the organic transition process and challenges that have arisen and how they developed a grazing system through new seeding of corn fields. Lunch is provided, and will be prepared in NOFA-VT’s mobile wood-fired pizza oven. After lunch, service providers will be available to answer any questions you have about transitioning and organic dairy production.
