Have you been wanting to keep livestock? How about sheep! Join Brenda Hsueh as she talks us through starting a sheep farm, the challenges and benefits of integrating this into a vegetable farm. Brenda and her family run Black Sheep Farm; an organic farm, producing vegetables for CSA members and raising sheep on pasture for lamb meat, fibre, and tanned lambskins. 

 

Facilitator: Brenda Hsueh, Black Sheep farm

 

This event is offered as part of the Ignatius Farm New Farmer Training Program. Educational content is geared toward new farmers, but is open to all farmers who might be curious about a certain topic, wishing to expand their farming knowledge, or in need of a refresh.

 

Anyone wishing to attend the full Term 2 can register here. Registering for Term 2 does not require you to register for each individual session.

 

In order to make our training and community building events accessible to all farmers (and future farmers) in Ontario, the Ignatius New Farmer Training Program strives to cover registration fees for anyone facing financial barriers. Need assistance covering the registration fee? Let us know!
