Farm Walk 2019 - Lazy R Ranch and LINC Foods
Farm Walk 2019 - Lazy R Ranch and LINC Foods
Holistic Management for Grazing Animals and Innovative Distribution Models

Join us for this two-part Farm Walk at Lazy R Ranch and LINC Foods! We will start the day at Lazy R Ranch where we will learn from 2018 Tilth Conference Farmer of the Year, Beth Robinette about her ranchs approach to holistically managed grass fed meats. We will see how this 4th generation family ranch has used their livestock to heal the land and how Holistic Management is the decision making tool for everything they do, from adaptive management of grazing to direct marketing to their customers.  There is an WSDA on-farm custom beef harvest happening the morning of the Farm Walk so participants will have the opportunity to tour the handling site and observe the process. Also get a first hand look at the pasture management that allows Lazy R to mimic the natural symbiotic relationship between grazing animals and grasslands. The group will then make their way to the LINC Foods Warehouse where we will talk about cooperative business models, innovative food distribution, and how local farmers can band together to amplify their food system impact.
