Mixed Vegetables, Hay, and Hops Farm Tour
Saturday, September 14, 2019
The Wilson Family Farm is a multi-generational, conventional farm that raises beef cattle, corn, soybeans, and hay. Brady and Amanda moved back to the farm and started Old Dutch Hops, where they produce pasture-raised poultry, lamb, and beef, grow a small amount of vegetables and hops, and make maple syrup. Amanda and Brady will discuss the difficulties and pleasures of trying to make a full-time living on a small, diversified family farm.
They will discuss their methods of raising poultry and ruminants humanely on pasture. Visitors can view the 500 layer mobile chicken coop and their various poultry pasture shelters. They will also discuss enterprise decision-making, their marketing and direct sales methods, and the importance of forming relationships with other like-minded businesses and farmers. Bring your pastured poultry and direct marketing questions!
