Green Hills Farm Project

If you are really interested in learning more about being a grass farmer, in othe words, raising animals on grass, the Green Hills Farm Project is probably one of the best groups in the state of Missouri to get to know.  They are all so friendly and willing to share their knowledge with others who are interested in farming like they are.  You don't need to be a paid member of their group to attend any of their events.  It is well worth your while and time to spend a good portion of your day at one of their summer farm walks.

The Green Hills Farm Project is a group of grass farmers in the North Central part of Missouri that are dedicated to growing livestock on grass and networking with each other to learn.  They hold an annual winter workshop usually in January and then members hosts farm walks throughout the growing season.  All events are casual, family-oreinted and open to non-members.
