We are celebrating Heritage Breeds week with two Build and Learn events to promote and teach about regional heritage breeds and emphasize the breeds we work with on the farm. May 14 will focus on Pineywoods cattle and May 21 will focus on Buckeye chickens.
Both days will include a farm tour, workshops, lunch, and an oxen demo.
Saturday, May 14, 8AM – 4PM, we join the Wobbly Farm Day in continuing setting up for Pineywoods cattle as part of forest restoration. That’s right: cattle and forest restoration! We will also demonstrate their abilities as oxen and talk about their amazing 500 year history. Workshops include making fence posts, making electric gates, and making a hay cart.

Saturday, May 21, 8AM – 4PM, we will be learning about the Buckeye chicken, their history and legacy, and what they offer as a dual purpose breed. Workshops include building a chick brooder, building a chicken tractor, and moving chickens on pasture. RSVP https://www.eventbrite.com/e/build-learn-buckeye-chicken-tickets-335748772617
