Berkshire-Taconic Grazing Tour with Sarah Flack

July 15 - July 16

$15 – $35

With generous funding from the National Grazing Lands Coalition, Berkshire Agricultural Ventures in partnership with Berkshire Grown will host a two-day Berkshire-Taconic Grazing Tour on July 15th & 16th with grazing expert Sarah Flack. Click here for more information.

The goal of the grazing tour is to educate grazing land managers and new graziers about sustainable grazing techniques, to demonstrate different approaches to climate-smart grazing, and to identify opportunities to improve grazing practices. We also intend this tour to be a place for graziers to connect with each other and with conservation technicians, to create ongoing educational and networking value.

Monday, July 15th – Day 1 will feature grass-based and organic livestock production consultant Sarah Flack, to deliver a Sustainable Grazing Management workshop at Gould Farm in Monterey, MA, followed by guided pasture walks at Gould Farm and at The Farm in New Marlborough, MA. As the workshop concludes for the day, we invite you to stay and join us for a networking dinner BBQ at The Farm New Marlborough, featuring their meats, local side dishes and beverages.

Tuesday, July 16th – Day 2 will be a tour to 3 grass-fed livestock farms across the Taconic region of NY:

  • Chaseholm Farm, Pine Plains, NY
  • Kinderhook Farm, Valatie, NY
  • Harrier Fields Farm, Schodack Landing, NY
