Kids Fiber Camp – Our first kids fiber camp
Taught by fiber artist and teacher Marcy Stewart of Port Townsend and assisted by shepherd Jennie! More details will be posted soon. It will be so fun!
Purpose - “Explaining sustainable poultry production models”
In this first segment of the seminar, you will learn about poultry history. Learn about poultry that fed our grandparents and great grandparents and how the poultry industry has drastically changed over the last seventy-five years! We will then carefully study what sustainable poultry looks like; birds that can naturally reproduce, be genetically maintained, capable of enjoying outdoor pasture and grow at a normal, slow growth rate!
Product - "Defining the true, historical meaning of standard bred poultry”
After we have carefully examined poultry breeds and understood the differences of standard bred poultry verses industrialized, hybrid poultry - we will carefully look at the end product. We will look at the two aspects of sustainable production - breeding & growing! You will learn how to effectively breed flocks of poultry that are both productive and profitable. You will learn the basic fundamentals of improving the birds through breeding and how to maximize production with the good husbandry skills in a pastured environment.
Process - "Understanding the foundational pillars of sustainable Poultry production"
To effectively multiply sustainable flocks of standard bred poultry, we must first create models of sustainable poultry production, these models include the five foundational pillars, breeding, growing, feeds & feeding, processing and marketing. In this session, we will look carefully at the overview of each of these pillars.
Programs - ""Developing a strategy and plan for success!"
Finally, the practical pieces that are necessary for success. These elements include facilities, feed, finances and pasture foraging. The training manual will be filled with resources that include budget overviews, facility plans, pasture growing strategies, feeding instructions and proper feed recipes. The goal of this eight hour, hands on seminar, is to give all participants an understanding of an effective strategy for sustainable poultry production, regardless of the size of farm that they manage!
