Organic Dairy workshop – Randolph VT – Pasture and crop management after a drought. August 30

Regina and Brent Beidler have been operating their 145 acre farm in Randolph Center since 1998, in 2000 they became certified organic and have been grass-fed for about 12 years.  Join Brent Beidler,  Sarah Flack and UVM Agronomist Dr. Heather Darby as we tour their fields and take a look at the Beidler’s irrigation system, their seed trials of corn, spelt and summer annuals and discuss general grass-fed pasture management and the adaptations they’ve had to make with drought. Lunch is provided, and will be prepared in NOFA-VT’s mobile wood-fired pizza oven.
