Lake Agassiz Chapter will be hosting a Farmer-to-Farmer Networking event July 13 at Marie and Bob Petry’s GrassStain Farm in Wolverton.
The event begins at 10:30 a.m. at the Petry farm, 1762 160th St, Wolverton. There will be a farm tour showcasing GrassStain Farm’s grazing paddocks, eggmobile, pastured pen poultry, small jersey herd, new cover crop project and new high tunnel.
A potluck lunch will follow at noon – please bring a dish to share. After lunch, there will be a chicken processing demonstration and then plenty of time to network and enjoy the farm.
Note: Do not use online maps or GPS directions to the Petry farm as they may mislead you. Directions from Wolverton: Drive 4.5 miles east on Hwy 30. Turn right on 170th Ave (Hwy 3). South for 1 mile. Turn left (east) on 160th St and go 1/2 mile; GrassStain Farm is the second house on the left. Directions from Sabin: Take Hwy 11 south about 20 miles to the second stop sign (road turns into Hwy 3 at county line). At that second stop sign, go one more mile south, then turn left on 160th St. Go east for 1/2 mile, and GrassStain Farm is the second house on the left.
