Southern VT Grazing School

This Grazing School will be hosted by both Consider Bardwell and Wayward Goose Farms in West Pawlet. Grazing consultant Sarah Flack will lead a pasture walk with farmers Peter and Dan Brooks as we talk about the concepts of management-intensive multi-species grazing with both dairy cows and goats. Angela Miller, owner of Consider Bardwell Farm, and her team will give us an overview of their business model with partnering farms to produce award-winning cheeses and other farm products. Research and development, quality control and distribution of their cheese will also be covered. Both farms are certified as ‘Animal Welfare Approved’ and we will learn more about those standards and the certification process. Lunch will be provided by the NOFA-VT mobile pizza oven.
