Wednesday October 27, 2021 from 9:30am - 1:00 pm EST

If you run a pasture-based livestock farm and are interested in experimenting with no-till annuals, increasing your organic matter, and decreasing your input costs without sacrificing the well-being of (or quality of taste from) your animals—this is the workshop for you! Join Future Harvest, UMES, NRCS, and the Million Acre Challenge at Pop’s Old Place, a gorgeous 70-acre pasture-based livestock farm located in Hurlock, MD—to learn how owner/operator Darlene Goehringer successfully converted sandy fields into green pastures in just 4 years. And all while turning out the most delicious beef, pork, and lamb! Darlene raises Randall cows, Mulefoot pigs, and Katahdin and Dorper Cross sheep -- all breeds were selected for enhanced flavor, adaptation to our climate, and low input costs.

Following the workshop, we’ll share a lunch featuring Pop’s Old Place hamburgers. $10 for members, $15 for non-members, free for BFTP. The registration fee includes lunch. REGISTER HERE.
