At Kirkview Farms, Cora, Mike and their team practice regenerative agriculture – raising grass-finished beef, pastured poultry, goats and pork in a way that prioritizes animal welfare and environmental sustainability while producing high-quality meats.

Join us for a half-day field day to learn how the Kirkview team uses rotational grazing to improve the health and welfare of their livestock, reduce input costs and care for the soil. You will also get a chance to check out some of the tools they use as regenerative farmers, including a demonstration of how electric bikes can be used as a climate-friendly tool in moving livestock across acreage.

Cora and Mike will give an overview of the grass fed market, grass fed genetics, pasture forages, grazing plans, fencing and water supply, as well as logistics and timing of rotating the different groups of livestock through the paddocks. No matter what type of farming you do, you will learn something during this field day!
