Catskills Young Farmers and CADE are proud to bring you another hands-on training – Small Ruminants 101! This two day event will introduce beginning farmers to different approaches to raising sheep and goats for meat. Your teachers will be an inspiring mix of Delaware County farmers, processors, and educators focused on sustainable practices.

October 26-27, 2023
9:00 – 5:00 both days


Rain or shine, we’ll walk and talk with the farmers about their practices and different perspectives on raising animals. Plan to be on your feet for 3+ hours at a time of walking through fields, brush, and woods. Waterproof shoes and sturdy warm clothing are a must! Delicious, locally sourced lunches will be provided by New Day Kitchen, and limited lodging is available for out-of-town folks upon request.

This event is FREE, but space is limited and registration is required.

Please note: we have a max capacity of 12 participants. Registration is open until October 11; Beginning farmers and those who self-identify as marginalized will be prioritized.
