You can farm fabulous food!

The entrepreneur’s guide to start and succeed in a farming enterprise

Getting started in a new farming enterprise or looking at ways you can farm better can be pretty daunting. Working out how to move your animals around, how long to rest your pastures, how you actually design for fertility and pest control, scale up and create enterprise diversity or get started in farming when you can't afford the land. How do you put the puzzle together? 

Joel Salatin is internationally respected for his innovative and integrated diverse animal systems that have healed his land and brought him abundant fertility and enviable profits.  RegenAG are excited to be bringing him to you to present and explain in detail how to replicate Polyface Farm's most successful livestock systems and answer your questions in Q & A style forum.
