About the Event

Rearing pastured poultry can be a great regenerative enterprise. Making it work can be a challenge!

Join in this interactive workshop to hear more about the key practices and principles of rearing pastured poultry, and share your building designs, tips on diet and examples of processing and routes to market.

We shall explore, with leading sustainability and animal welfare consultant Anna Heaton, the challenge of selecting, feeding and housing pastured poultry for meat and eggs in a high welfare and regenerative context.

We will hear from a range of farmers (big and small) who are making it work – lets learn from their mistakes.

Peer to peer workshop sessions will allow participants to share problems and solutions. Bring photos and plans of your mobile sheds, chicken tractors and turkey gobbledygos!

By the end of the day, you leave with a plan for your next steps and a community of fellow pastured poultry keepers to bounce off.

We will of course feed you well throughout the day with a menu featuring locally reared pastured chicken and eggs, and fresh produce from our kitchen garden.
