Join Blandy Experimental Farm, on Tuesday, June 25th at 6:30 pm, for the first of a series of workshops and presentations on the techniques and benefits of restorative grazing.

In this series you will learn how to apply methods of grazing to reduce costs, produce grass-fed livestock as a profitable income, increase the soil quality, and provide support to a variety of wildlife.

We will view Part One of a newly released documentary, “Roots So Deep You Can See the
Devil Down There.”

This series follows how seven farmers in the US who have adopted these farming and grazing techniques over four years and continue today.

You will have the opportunity to meet local farmers who have applied the methods here in
Virginia, as well as a local goat herder who utilizes her animals for brush and weed clearing.

You’ll have the chance to talk through the goals and questions for your property if you like.
