Farm Walk 2019 Lost Peacock Creamery How Not to Start a Goat Dairy: Lessons Learned & Models for Success from a Veteran, Female Farmer
September 9 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm$15 – $25
Join farmers Rachael Taylor-Tuller and Matthew Tuller of Lost Peacock Creamery as they share their story of how they came to be farmers, why they landed on a goat dairy, and how they are working to create a sustainable business model while sharing some of the harsh and humorous lessons they’ve learned along the way. As a veteran farmer, Rachael will talk about farming as a method of healing and guest experts will be on hand to share resources and opportunities that exist for veteran farmers. We will also cover marketing strategy, agritourism as an income stream (yes, that includes goat yoga!), and food safety requirements as we walk the farm. Rachel and Matthew will showcase their favorite fencing systems, discuss their soil health management plan, and how they use herding and guard animals such as dogs, llamas, and…peacocks? Participants will have the opportunity to observe the afternoon milking, sample Lost Peacock Creamery cheese, and tour the milking parlor and processing facilities.
