Certified organic farm to host pasture walk

Barb and Don Waldron will host a pot luck dinner and twilight pasture walk on their 53 acre certified organic farm located 12 miles west of Franksville. They practice managed rotational grazing to provide forage for their beef herd, supply the herd’s winter feed and also raise chickens, turkeys, and “you pick” raspberries & strawberries. Their beef herd consists of 6 cows and their offspring which are grazed using managed intensive grazing on 10 acres of immaculate pasture. The Waldron’s direct market their custom beef.

This informative pasture walk will focus on the following topics:

  • Planning strategies used to fully utilize 100 percent of a small acreage farm land base.
  • Grass and legume species identification and what species would be appropriate on your farm.

If you are a farmer interested in managed rotational grazing or small acreage farm management don’t miss this event. There will be lots of opportunity for questions, networking with existing graziers, and good conversation, so mark the date and be sure to attend.
