Field Day at Mark Shepard’s New Forest Farm

Free

Join us on this field day to see the pioneering techniques in restoration agriculture at New Forest Farm, a 106 acre perennial permaculture farm in the Driftless area! Farmer Mark Shepard will discuss how they aim to use farm practices that mimic nature, and increase the environmental stability of their farm though tree plantings (chestnuts, hazelnuts, pine nuts, apples). They also raise cattle, pigs, chickens, and turkeys. The day will end with a cyder tasting at Shepard’s Hard Cydery! RSVP to laura@csacoalition.org by May 3.
