Grazing Sheep in Solar Energy Facilities: Lunch, Learn & Tour

  • UVM Extension - Brattleboro office 130 Austine Drive Brattleboro, VT 05301 (map)

Join Grazing Specialist Kimberly Hagen and Vermont Agency of Agriculture Development Coordinator Alex DePillis to learn to combine solar panel arrays and pastures for sheep. The workshop will start in the conference room, include lunch, and finish with an optional tour of a nearby farm.

We’ll hear from sheep farmers Lexie Hain, Ashley Bridge and Jascha Pick about their experiences with contract grazing for solar facilities, historic park sites, and neighbors. We’ll also hear from owners of solar facilities who are experienced with grazing arrangements and those seeking a grazing arrangement.
