What will you learn?

Integrating grazing animals and forest management, or silvopasture, can be beneficial both for environmental conservation and as a farm income generator. Learn the principals of this managed intensive grazing system and hear from farmers utilizing these principles as SFA hosts Silvopasture Field Training workshops this August. 

Suitable for marginal land and unmanaged wooded pasture, silvopasture combines livestock, forage, and trees into one holistic system. These workshops will illustrate how this farming system can improve soil health and water quality, enhance wildlife and prevent erosion – all while providing short- and long-term farm income. 

This workshop is set for the following dates and locations:

  • Thurs, Aug. 6, at Tom Barthel and Gail Wilkinson's Snake River Farm, 18251 62nd St, Becker
  • Tues., Aug. 11, at Sun Up Ranch, 12248 Clark Dr SW, Brainerd
  • Thurs, Aug. 13, at Tom Hunter farm, 23257 685th St, Wabasha

These events will take place outside with social distancing guidelines in effect; space is limited to 20 people per site due to Minnesota COVID-19 guidelines.
