Pastured Pigs in a Multi-species Rotational Grazing System
Thursday November 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
2 Northern Ontario farms + multiple livestock species = 2 different strategies for rotational grazing! Join us for a virtual tour of Kipling Ridge Farms and Corbett Creek Farm to see how each farm integrates pastured pigs into their multi-species rotational grazing system. Find out how each farm manages fencing, feeding, sheltering, watering, and moving animals – with a focus on soil health and regeneration. Participants will watch a pre-recorded video tour of each farm’s operations ahead of time, and then gather virtually for a Q&A panel discussion on Zoom.
Kipling Ridge Farms is located between Sudbury and North Bay, and is run by James and Josee Morin and their 4 children. They breed and raise Kune Kune and Large Black pigs along with a small herd of cattle, meat chickens and turkeys – all on a pasture-based, multi-species rotational grazing system rooted in the principles of regenerative agriculture.
Corbett Creek Farm & Creative Centre is located near Thunder Bay, and operated by Jonathan Hollway and Aly Wood. They raise heritage breeds of pastured pigs, whose diet is supplemented with leftover whey from Thunder Oak Cheese Farm and spent brewery grains, as well as grass-finished beef.
