Regenerative Grazing From the Ground Up

September 19, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Forrest and Greg Stricker from Spring Creek Farms—a 287-acre dairy and poultry farm that has been certified organic for two decades—will share how they optimize soil health through their pasture management practices as they strive to improve their forage productivity, quality, and longevity.

The farm’s herd of Jersey, Holstein, and Ayrshire cows are 100-percent grass-fed, and graze perennial pasture in a management intensive, rotational system. The farm ships its organic, grass-fed milk, and offers on-farm raw milk sales.

Speaker information

The Stricker family has been farming Spring Creek Farm for five generations. Currently, Greg Stricker and his father, Forrest, farm together at Spring Creek.
