Carbon, Grass and Meat

June 2, 2018


June 2, 2018
Bean Hollow Grassfed
Flint Hill, Virginia

Our Bean Hollow Grassfed Day is part of HMI’s Open Gate Learning Series. Open Gates are peer-to-peer action-based learning days with short presentations and small group exercises geared for participants to share discoveries and management techniques with guidance from experienced facilitators and producers.

Holistic Management works with nature, not against it. We will discuss planet and animal-friendly management techniques that lead to richer soil, improved water containment, nutrient-dense food, more successful farms and ranches, and thriving communities.

Whether you are an agricultural producer, local agency representative, or just interested in ranching, land stewardship, and the production of grassfed meats, this is a day for you.

Come and be a part of this on-the-ground learning day, connect with others who care about a healthy food system and help strengthen your local communities. Because wall have a stake in the way our food is grown.
