2017 Farm Tour
August 22, 2017 @ 3:30 am - 7:30 amFree
Join Clean Lakes Alliance for our annual Farm Tour! This year, we’ll have the chance to tour Endres Berryridge Farm — home base for Clean Lakes Alliance Community Board member and Yahara Pride Farms chair and co-founder, Jeff Endres.
We’ll start off the tour in partnership with the North American Manure Expo. Highlights will include:
- A tour of the Endres dairy manure composting operation and a discussion of the costs and water quality benefits
- A tour of an alfalfa field that has had compost applied, including a demonstration of compost application
- A tour of the Endres heifer barns, including a look at the recycled compost/sawdust bedding
Stick around for an informal Q&A with Clean Lakes Alliance and Yahara Pride Farms to follow the tour.
When you register, please select one of the following pick up locations:
- Olin Park (Downtown Madison, Olin-Turville Court)
- Yahara Heights County Park (NE Madison, Catfish Court)
- Rex’s Innkeeper (Waunakee, Century Ave)
There will be a bus shuttle to the farm location. No parking at farm – contact us if you need to make special arrangements.
The Farm and Digester Tour is produced in partnership with Yahara Pride Farms and Endres Berryridge Farms, with supporting sponsor Dane County Environmental Council.
Farmland makes up about two thirds of our watershed and dairy is a huge part of the local economy and culture. Sign up for this tour to learn more about how farmers are innovating to protect soil and water quality.
