OGRAIN Field Day: Organic Small Grains Production and Marketing

Date: July 7, 2016, 10am-3pm

Location: Dolan Farms, Dodgeville, WI

Posted June 2016

Spend the morning at Dolan Farms with Dave Dolan, an experienced organic small grain grower, who will share his knowledge of food-grade grain production. In the afternoon, we’ll tour Lonesome Stone Milling, where the farm’s grain is processed.

This is the first of four field days hosted by OGRAIN, the Organic Grain Resources And Information Network at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The field day series is made possible by a grant from the USDA Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program. OGRAIN is a collaborative effort of the UW-Madison Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems, the Farm and Industry Short Course, the UW-Madison Organic and Sustainable Cropping Systems lab and the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES).

Pre-registration is required. Visit the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES) website for more information.
