Come join Farmer Brian for this "non-herbal" offering!  We have been raising meat birds on our homestead two times a year for 5 years.  Come join Brian as he discusses the ins and outs of raising your own birds.  This workshop will include information on equipment needs, space requirements, costs, pros/cons, feed requirements, sourcing birds, and all the things we wish we would have known when starting our first batch!  This class is limited to how to raise and manage a meat bird flock on your homestead.  This is geared towards new homesteaders and chicken owners.  We will not be discussing how to butcher chickens in this class, however, we will go over some of the basic equipment needed to successfully raise and butcher your own birds.


Seasonal Herb Walks (offered Spring, Summer and Fall)

Our seasonal herb walks are a wonderful way to learn more about specific herbs and their uses.  Each walk focuses on a handful of specific plants that are in their prime during that season.  We will discuss natural history, how to grow/cultivate/forage, how to harvest, and how to use each particular herb, as well as most effective preparations of each herb.  Participants will receive handouts and information that will equip you to grow/forage and use each herb discussed.
