October 22, 2016, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM @ Register for Exact Location
Class is full. Check back for future workshop opportunities.
Visit a property that is far from the
typical 5-acre horse farm. Through
intensive management of all aspects
of the farm, the property owners are
able to provide more grass than their
four horses could ever consume in
any given grazing season. You will
see winter mud-free paddocks with
a drainage and sump pump system
installed to fight an unfavorable
slope, manure storage and composting
structures that produce nutrient
amendments for the pastures, and a
rotational grazing system to make the
most of their limited pasture acreage.

Each month, the AgCOI coordinator, the WSU Extension Pierce County Director and the Pierce County Ag Program Manager will be having breakfast in the delicious Tim's Kitchen. If you are an existing farmer, or even just following an interest, join us over a cup of coffee to talk about any specific issues that you would like help to resolve on your farm. We may not be able to solve the problem here, but you will have our undivided attention, and we can work together as a team to come up with a plan of where to go to get the problem solved.

The Proctor Farmers Market strives to provide the community with fresh, locally grown farm products while providing area growers with a venue for their crops and products. In addition we seek to educate the public about the importance of local agriculture, sustainable business and the impact we have on the environment. Bringing people together at the Farmers Market helps promote a greater sense of community, serves as an educational forum, and helps encourage local business development.
