Our goal is to offer a variety of information that will benefit you in your efforts

needed to get started with a simple system and take part in putting some of the pieces
together. You’ll be a pro in no time!
Poultry Basics and Equipment: Raising poultry has become a popular backyard hobby. In most cases, you don’t have
to live on a farm to raise chickens. Come learn about the basics of raising poultry
including the equipment needed for having chicks to laying hens. There’s nothing like
producing your own eggs!
Small Ruminants: Due to their smaller size, small ruminants are not as intimidating as larger animals
and are often good choices for youth, women, and aging farmers. Both goats and sheep
require similar feed, fencing, housing and facilities, and health care, including
parasites and predators. Join us to learn more about some basic tools and equipment
needed for raising small ruminants.
Long-Term Food Storage: : Interested in preserving food for longer than 1 year, but do not know where to start?

Cheese-Making: Got milk? Join the soft cheese making session. Making mozzarella and ricotta at home
with farm fresh or store-bought milk is easy! We will make ricotta during the session
so you can go home with all the tips and instructions to make yummy mozzarella and
Integrated Pest Management in the Garden: We have a lot of insect and disease pressure on our crops in the South. Integrated
pest management uses a variety of ways to reduce damage to our crops by monitoring
for pests, biological control, habitat manipulation, modifying cultural practices,
and using resistant varieties. Pesticides are only used if warranted. Come learn a
variety of ways to keep insect and diseases from ruining your garden!
We’d love to see you on the 30th! We look forward to your feedback and hearing other topics you would like to see
