Join us as Richard Jensen of Flying J Farm leads us on a free tour! The farm produces organically grown produce, maple syrup, and grass-fed beef; the 250-acre property also boasts a lake, swimming pond, and hiking trails.
This is an exciting opportunity as we will get to see a multitude of sustainable management techniques in practice. Richard says that the two-hour tour will start with topics and activities around the house and barns, including outdoor furnace, greenhouse, high tunnel, solar electric, solar water heat, lumber mill, maple sugaring, waste management, and composting. Then he will have a wagon ready to go back to the rest of the farm and lake where we'll see rotational grazing of beef cows, vegetable gardens, green manure, fruit orchard, nut trees, a straw bale outhouse, and the lake barn (cabin built with wood from the farm).
Products from the farm will be available for purchase including organically grown grass-fed beef, maple syrup, eggs, and vegetables.
He encourages us to carpool as much as possible to conserve energy, so please post below to let us know where you are coming from, if you would like a ride, or if you have room for a few extra passengers in your vehicle.
