PERENNIAL FARM GATHERING 

December 7-8 2018

Lussier Family Heritage Center

3101 Lake Farm Rd,Madison, WI

 

You’re invited to the 6th annual Perennial Farm Gathering! If you’re interested in perennial crops and pastured livestock, come learn what farmers, scientists, and others are discovering—both what’s working well and what needs more work!

 

We’re delighted to announce Greg Judy of Green Pastures Farms will a give a keynote presentation.  Greg is the author of No Risk Ranching and Comeback Farms, and a frequent collaborator with the Center for Agroforestry at the University of Missouri.  He’ll be speaking about silvopasture, mob grazing, and the business principles of improving the ecological health of owned and leased land (over 1,200 acres by profitably raising cattle, sheep, horses, goats, pigs, chickens and mushrooms.

 

We are also hosting the world premiere of a mini-documentary film about farmers of uncommon and up & coming fruit and nut crops. Afterwards, a panel of farmers who star in the film and the filmmakers will share their insights and answer questions.

 

Of course, the Perennial Farm Gathering would not be complete if it didn’t include the popular Nutshell Show & Tells. In five minutes flat, share a little about what you’ve been up to lately, with or without pictures. It’s always fun, fascinating, and great getting to know who else in the room shares your particular perennial passions!

 

We have several breakout sessions planned, including useful topics for aspiring farmers, seasoned producers, or wherever you fit in the food chain. Great food, fun music, a beautiful venue, and most of all an inspiring community promise to once again make it a special occasion.  We’ll share more details about the agenda and registration soon, so save the date and stay tuned!
