This weekend, in the bitter 5 am cold with five heavy layers of clothes on, I traveled to the annual Vermont Grazing Conference. 409 farmers from all over New England, and Virginia, also made the trek. There were two 8 hour classes the first day, one involved cutting up carcasses and was called Meat: From Farm to Processor to Plate.
The other 9 am- 5 pm class was called Building Your Value-Added Business.
The second day of the conference included 3 sessions with EIGHT classes per session to chose from!!
Here is the link to the entire brochure, in PFD format, for those of you who are interested in grass fed meats and fresh local foods:
The conference was sponsored by the Vermont Beef Producers Association (I am a member)
