Lunch is a potluck (main dish provided) so bring a dish to pass. Please dress for walking in pastures.

Host Farm:

Amy Fenn left her Madison library job in favor of tromping around a 40-acre hilltop trying to turn a depleted hayfield and unmanaged woods into a savanna/silvopasture. This will be her second year of strategically grazing heifers while designing and building infrastructure like fence, water, and an off-grid home. 

Please register under the corresponding event at www.wisconsinfarmersunion.com/upcoming-events or RSVP to the WFU State Office at 715-723-5561.
