We're kicking off the 2023 FCH Workshop Season with an on farm discussion style workshop. Caleb Fahnestock of Back to the Basics Farm will walk participants through the benefits of rotational grazing to overall livestock health. As well as explain how this lost skill is key to preserving what agricultural land is left in our county.  This workshop will help homesteaders and famers design and manage their grazing schedules while implementing ancestral skills to better steward their land.

We live in a world where many small businesses are found using devices such as your phone or computer. While it wasn't always a necessity to have a social media presence, Dayna will spend the afternoon explaining why she thinks it's an essential aspect of having a successful business.
