Riemer Family Farm is a family owned and operated diversified livestock operation. We raise 100% grass-fed beef and lamb, pork, and turkeys, broilers, and laying hens on pasture. We practice regenerative agricultural techniques, including rotational grazing, stacked livestock enterprises, and diverse seed mixes in our pastures to promote soil health, animal wellness, and pollinator habitat across our 280 acres in south central Wisconsin. Learn how we transitioned from our family's historic grain fed beef operation to our now 100% grass fed system. We will also discuss how to begin incorporating other livestock species into your operation and how to decide which animals are the best fit for you, your land, and your market. Bring it full circle by learning how we market and direct sale the products we raise to customers.

Afterward, there will be an optional pasture walk with Gene Schriefer from UW-Extension, who will lead a discussion about grazing.

There will be a potluck lunch in the middle of the day. Please bring a dish to pass. This field day is FREE to attend. Please RSVP by sending an email to AJ Boucek at grow@learngrowconnect.org.
