Learn all about how a small fiber farm with goats, sheep, and alpacas use the latest science on manure management to keep our water clean.

Join KCD and the Discovery Farms® project to tour Blue Mist Fiber Farm and learn all about how the landowners steward their animals and the environment around them. We will take a tour of the farm, meet the animals and learn about the practices and projects that have been implemented on the farm, from a heavy use area and dry manure storage to a creekside planting project! The Discovery Farms project seeks to evaluate the success of different manure storage options by evaluating nutrient run-off and water quality. Blue Mist Farm has served as a host site for this project so we will also be learning all about the study results and the best ways to deal with manure from a scientific and practical perspective.

If you also struggle with managing mud, turning your manure into valuable compost, managing healthy pastures, or would like to learn about how to benefit and enhance wildlife habitat on your own property this tour is for you! A light lunch will be provided.
