Description

This class is a full-day, inquiry based and discussion focused hands-on educational opportunity, centered on the basics of raising a variety of sheep breeds in our region using regenerative agricultural practices. We cover a wide variety of topics, including but not limited to choosing the right sheep breed for your farm, basic sheep handling, housing, fencing, nutrition, health and healthcare basics; what managed grazing looks like and developing your own pasture based management program; connecting with a mentor and community resources; value-added sheep products and marketing.

Lambing and breeding are not covered in this class, we offer separate educational opportunities that center on these topics.

We ask that you bring a lunch and beverage, comfortable chair for sitting outdoors, and note taking supplies. Come dressed appropriately for an outdoor, farm-centered workshop, no open toed shoes.
