Pastures and/or hay fields are important parts of many farms. The Community Farm of Simsbury has 21 acres of certified organic hay fields. Join UConn’s Dairy and Livestock Extension Educator Rich Meinert and NRCS’s District Conservationist James Hyde for a learning walk through the farm’s fields to evaluate them for their hay potential and hear suggested management strategies for improved quality and production.
Joe Bonelli, UConn Extension, will be on on hand to discuss Crop Insurance. Michael Keilty will also be there to talk about the SARE Natural Meat project. Dress for walking through the fields. The workshop is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about pasture management.
