“Chick” It Out: A New Way to Experience the Poultry Workshop

On September 16, we’re hosting our Fall Poultry Workshop at Moss Mountain Farm. In honor of our 10th workshop, we have an all-new format, with hands-on demonstrations and the opportunity for you to customize your workshop experience. Whether you currently raise chickens or want to learn more about having your own flock, you need to be there!

You’ll get to participate in workshops, learn from poultry experts on a variety of topics, and take a tour of Poultryville, where we house several breeds of heritage poultry.

Poultry Workshop options include:
