Saturday, May 11th - 9:00-11:00 am

Join us for a 2-hour class focusing on the basics of keeping your backyard egg layers, broilers, turkeys, or waterfowl! We will learn about breeds, feed, and the "dos and don'ts". Breakout sessions will be provided for egg layers versus meat birds.


OPTIONAL - If you would like this class to include your own chicks to take home, call the office 2 weeks before the class and we will order them for you!


Saturday, May 25th - 9:00-11:00 am

We're not kidding! This class is all about goats and four-legged kids! Take this class to learn all the interesting facts about raising goats for pets, dairy, or show.
