Many thanks to the Haakenson Family at Jubilee Biodynamic Farm for a wonderfully informative On the Farm event! With the wild May weather providing a dramatic soundtrack, farmer Erick pulled up a bench, gathered the group in close and dove into the topic of holistic herd management. The discussion flowed seamlessly, except for a few periodic thunderclaps and moments of deafening downpours, and the group remained deeply engaged as the conversation touched on everything from Erick’s literature recommendations to rotational grazing practices. With everyone eager to catch a glimpse of the livestock barn, we waited for a break in the rain before dashing over for an up-close and personal look at the science of composting and manure management. Knowing that a farmers work is never done, we thanked ours hosts for sharing their time and knowledge and conveyed our deep appreciation for the incredible work that they do.
