What a great field day last week at The Golden Yoke in St. Ignatius!  Laura and Connie gave us a fantastic tour and thorough explanations about their decision-making processes around fencing and pasture.  And we tasted their delicious ice cream – vanilla, mint chocolate chip, and coffee, oh my!

 ​ With 21 attendees from as far as Geraldine and as nearby as just a mile or two, we had a great and diverse group, including staff and interns from Lifeline Produce, County Rail Farm, Mill Crick Farm, Foothill Farm, and more.
Every attendee said their knowledge of fencing and pasture management improved!  As one noted in their evaluation, “it was great to have an opportunity to ask questions and hear the nitty gritty details about pasturing and grazing.”  That’s what we like to hear!

Field Day at Lifeline Produce in Victor!
Wednesday, June 17 from 5pm-7pm, followed by a potluck dinner

Started in 1978 by Steve Elliott and Luci Brieger, Lifeline Produce encompasses about 40 acres of pasture, hay, mixed vegetables, flowers, and herbs.
They’ll be focusing on the ways in which they incorporate livestock into their rotations and how they’ve specialized their tools and equipment for their specific farm operation.
