Cricket Creek Farm is a small grass-based cow dairy producing a variety of products including raw-milk, grass-fed meat and seven varieties of artisanal farmstead cheeses.  They use high density groups of cows rotated through temporary paddocks within their pastures, allowing for the most efficient use of available forage and maximizing the benefit to livestock and soil. Topher Sabot, Owner and Manager, will answer questions about how they use a combination of high-tech and low-tech fencing to to manage the cows and maximize efficiency. We will discuss grazing density and practices that provide superior nourishment for the animals while building nutrient rich and microbially diverse soil.  We will have a conversation about the fine points of producing dairy on a primarily grass-fed system.

Climate Solutions Are Grown In Soil – 2020 Keynote speaker Tim LaSalle

We’re mooooving online!  Due to the continued recommendations for physical distancing to control the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to cancel the in-person conference and move to an online experience spread out over three weeks from July 20 – August 9, 2020. 

At this time, we are solving for the best format to host the conference and reorganizing the educational program to fit the new model.  The virtual conference will be a combination of live video conferencing and discussion group opportunities to network with the community in an online digital ecosystem.
