Event Details

Join Guy Choiniere of Choiniere Family Farm, a fourth generation, 100% grass-fed dairy farm in northwestern Vermont, as he shares lessons learned over the past 15 years about maximizing soil health while improving animal health and financial stability.

We will tour the Choiniere’s grazing operation as Guy discusses his approach to soil health, which is centered around the principles of keeping it simple, replacing what you harvest, and building soil resiliency.

Stick around after the technical portion of the workshop for pizza from NOFA-VT’s mobile pizza oven and a discussion of how changes in policy and other tools can help to expand the use of good soil health practices on Vermont’s farms.

This workshop is part of a 3-part series focusing on soil health solutions for commercial farmers, and opportunities to create meaningful policy change to expand healthy soils practices in Vermont.

Cost: Farmers: free; Non-farmers: $15 to cover cost of dinner
