Small Farms Resources at NC A&T State University

Gender menders

tractor_iconThe Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) has a workshop specially tailored to “Pasture Management for Women Cattle Producers” on June 2 from 9 a.m. to noon at N.C. State’s Beef Education Unit at Lake Wheeler Field Laboratories. While there is no registration fee for the grazing management workshop, the facility can only accommodate 20 participants and the registration deadline is May 10.

That same afternoon at the same facility, there will be a “Meat for Market Workshop (for Women in the Meat Industry)” program led by Meredith Leigh, author of The Ethical Meat Handbook: A Complete Guide to Home Butchery, Charcuterie, and Cooking for the Conscious Omnivore and Matt Helms of The Chop Shop Butchery in Asheville. Their focus will be on marketing strategies for pasture-raised beef, and the program will include a carcass breakdown paired with different cooking techniques for different cuts. The registration  fee is $25, and, as with the morning program covering pasture management, there is a May 10 registration deadline and only the first 20 registrations can be accommodated.
