Visit two farms in one day and learn about raising pastured poultry for
local markets in Great Falls. This is the second of AERO's summer farm tour
series, and will start at Groundworks Farm, an integrated vegetable, herb,
and poultry operation run by Eric and Audra Bergman. Hear first-hand what
motivated them to start the farm, how they produce and market their
products, and the role poultry plays in their diversified operation. Next,
we will travel a few miles down the road to Christopher McVeda's farm for
lunch and a further exploration of his production, processing, and marketing
strategies for broilers and eggs. We will dive into questions relating to
Montana's pastured poultry market, including what is an appropriate scale
for local poultry producers, and what are some next steps for Montana
<http://www.chicken.coop/> 's Poultry Grower's Cooperative. The tour is on
Monday, August 15th from 11:00 - 3:00pm and costs $10 including lunch.
Pre-registration is required. To register online, please click here
