You can learn a LOT in a pasture!

Troy is accomplished at leading pasture walks that shine a new light on forages and their management.  By looking at what they see in a neighbor’s pasture, participants can compare it to their own results, turning a walk through a field into a practical grazing seminar.

Here are some of the groups and organizations inviting Troy to lead pasture walks:

  • Local Farmer Groups and Soil and Water Conservation Districts
  • Rodale Institute
  • Northeast SARE, NY Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative and NOFA-NY
  • Cornell, WVU and Maryland Cooperative Extension Services
  • Vermont Grass Farmers Association
  • Pennsylvania Certified Organic and the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture
