Green Hills Farm Project Winter Seminar

The Green Hills Farm Project’s (GHFP) annual winter seminar is just this Saturday, Jan 30th. The GHFP is a lose knit group of like minded producers in north central Missouri who all focus on grass-based farming practices. They hold one winter seminar and about 6-8 farm walks throughout the season once the weather warms up. The farm walks take place at members' farm, are very informal and family oriented. What is great about the GHFP group is that all their activities are open to all and they share their information freely.

The theme of this year’s seminar is marketing of grass fed and “natural” farm products. Attendees need not be members of the Green Hills Farm Project — everybody is welcome. Cost will be real cheap, like $20 per family. It’s a family atmosphere. Bring a covered dish, and enjoy the day. Drinks are provided.

Kim Barker is a rancher in Northwest Oklahoma (http://www.walnutcreekfarms.com/index.htm ); he has been associated with the Oklahoma Food Cooperative .

Blaine Hitzfield is with Seven Sons Meat Company in Roanoke, IN. Blaine’s family raises and markets grass-fed meat and eggs.
