This event is part of the 2019 Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series. The Wilson Family Farm is a multi-generational, conventional farm that raises beef cattle, corn, soybeans, and hay. Brady and Amanda moved back to the farm and started Old Dutch Hops, where they produce pasture-raised poultry, lamb, and beef, grow a small amount of organic vegetables and hops, and make maple syrup. Amanda and Brady will discuss the difficulties and pleasures of trying to make a full-time living on a small, diversified family farm.
