Dig in with On-Farm Learning
Join us every summer for on-farm learning at Marbleseed Organic Field Days. Field Days are free and hosted by regenerative and organic farmers across the Upper Midwest who are using innovative organic farming practices and feeding their communities.
From small urban farms and midscale silvopasture operations to larger scale row crops, we aim to offer field days for every type of farm. Come connect with community and get fresh ideas to try on your farm.
We are looking forward to hosting an array of Field Days across the Midwest this spring and summer, on topics ranging from integrated livestock conservation planning to grain rotations for climate smart agriculture to foraging.
2023 Marbleseed Organic Field Days
WiWiC Field Day: Blue Ox Farm
June 1 | 3 - 6 p.m. | Blue Ox Farm | Wheeler, WI
Pack your camp chair and join us for a summer’s afternoon in June at the farm of Wisconsin Women in Conservation (WiWiC) coach Lauren Langworthy! We will take a walk around Blue Ox Farm to see what Lauren along with husband Caleb are doing and how they are doing it. They raise grass-fed sheep, sell lamb, and have a small beef herd doing restoration work on their farm. See first-hand how they have worked with the NRCS (Natural Resources Conservation Service) to implement several conservation projects, with a special focus on grazing. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. All women farmers, landowners and conservationists from Polk, Barron, Dunn and surrounding counties are welcome to attend– whatever your background, from beginners to experts! RSVP here
