100% Grass-Fed Seasonal Raw Milk Dairy
The workshop will cover the basics of raw milk production, seasonal dairy management, and intensive rotational grazing, as well as fencing options and water systems for cows and calves. Participants will meet at Blue Hill Farm and view all aspects of milk production from the milking machines to the pastures. (Be aware that the farm has two locations; do not go to the location on North Plain Rd.)
Instructor: Sean Stanton has been farming for 10 years and the dairy has been licensed a raw milk dairy for three years.
