In Her Boots: Success Strategies from the Soil Sisters

Date: Friday, August 2nd

Time: 10 AM - 3 PM

Location: Riemer Family Farm, W2252 Riemer Rd, Brodhead, WI


Are you a woman ready to explore taking the first steps toward your dream of starting a farm?  Do you have lots of ideas but need advice on where to start?  

Come for an inspiring day of advice, ideas and seasoned perspectives from the Wisconsin Soil Sisters, an innovative network of local women championing organic and sustainable agriculture in their community.  

This special In Her Boots session will have a particular focus on women ranchers running meat operations including a detailed, behind-the-scenes farm tour at Riemer Family Farm. 

Pasture management and grazing principles will be covered along with raising beef, turkeys, chickens and lambs. In addition to the animals Riemer Family Farm raises, we'll have meat-raising resources on hand to answer questions on sheep, goats and chickens.

Review all the details and register to attend here.
