Name: Farm Tour: Highland Spring Farm
Date: October 17, 2019
Time: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM CDT
Event Description:

Take a tour of Highland Spring Farm

Clean Lakes Alliance will be headed outside the city to visit one of our agricultural neighbors. In the return of our popular Farm Tour, we visit Kevin Oppermann's family farm where he implements rotational-grazing techniques, converting cropland to permanent pasture in an effort to sustainably raise his Scottish Highland cattle.

Clean Lakes Alliance Farm Tours demonstrate effective conservation practices that, when implemented, help to protect soil and water quality across Dane County. Attendees will gain a better understanding of innovative land management practices.
