MOA’s Summer Farm Tour
Saturday, June 29, 2013, starting at 1 pm
C-5 Organics, 3211 Reese Creek Road, Belgrade, MT 59714
MOA will be touring three farms in the Bozeman area: C5 Organics, Amaltheia Organic Dairy and MSU’s Towne’s Harvest.
The tour will start at C-5 Organics. Brian Goldhahn operates C-5 and has been Certified Organic since 2004. He raises grass-finished beef, hay and small grains. He will talk about his operation and the marketing of grass-finished beef.
The second stop will be just up the road at Amaltheia Organic Dairy. Amaltheia raises organic dairy goats to make cheese from the milk. They also have pastured, whey-fed pigs and raise vegetables. We will tour the milking parlor and discuss rationing and pastures for the goats, raising pigs outside in Montana, field and high tunnel vegetable production, and composting to improve soil fertility.
The final stop will be at Towne’s Harvest on the Montana State University campus. There we will see their organic vegetable production and hear about the marketing of vegetables. Towne’s Harvest is a key component of MSU’s Sustainable Foods and Bioenergy Systems where students get hands-on instruction in organic vegetable systems.
Participants can show up at C-5 Organics or take the bus from Towne’s Harvest, which will transport to all the tour spots. Appetizers will follow after the tour and give attendees a chance to visit.
The tour fee is $15.00 for adults, $5.00 for students, and kids are free.
RSVPs are encouraged by calling Nate at (406)-579-6439 or emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join MOA June 29, 2013, for a fun-filled day of learning.
