Silvopasture Field Day
- This event has passed.
Silvopasture, the intentional practice of integrating forages, animals and trees, is one type of agroforestry with potential to improve ecosystem responses and provide multiple sources of farm income.
Are you interested in successfully transitioning or starting a silvopasture system? Join us for a workshop, field day, and on-farm instruction including the latest silvopasture research from North Carolina and Virginia.
Plus, learn about a new NC Choices USDA project aimed at connecting beginning livestock producers with silvopasture and other land opportunities across the state.
Registration and meeting location: Cherry Hospital Conference Center, Montgomery Dr, Goldsboro, NC 27530
Later in the day participants will visit the Agroforestry Unit at CEFS Field Research Education, and Outreach Facility at Cherry Research Farm (farm coordinates: 35.3841520, -78.0344300)
