When: Sat, October 23, 2021
What Time: 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.

Join Vermont Grass Farmers Association for a pasture walk with Annie Hopper and Sean Willerford at their farm in Panton, VT. Grazing expert Sarah Flack will be joining us for the walk and sharing her wisdom.

We will explore their approach to:

  • Pastured poultry
  • Pasture restoration
  • Transitioning tilled land to pasture land
  • Barnyard renovation and wood chip pad insulation

Come walk their fields and hear how Annie and Sean are rehabilitating newly acquired, over-grazed pastures, upgrading aging infrastructure, creating a dry barnyard, and establishing new pastures from tilled fields.

Annie and Sean raise 6,000 meat birds, 88 ewes and 30 mother cows. They manage over 150 acres and are in their second year of converting 45 acres of tilled land into pasture.

If you are looking for fresh ideas to solve some common New England grazing farm issues, come walk the pastures at Scuttleship Farm and be a part of the lively discussion. This event takes place at their second farm location, which is on Basin Harbor Road (not the home farm).
