Description

Starting a pasture rotational system can be challenging. In this three-part series, you will meet three farmers who have spent their beginning farming years creating processes to make a regenerative pasture system work for their farms.

In part two, we’ll learn how Susan is raising laying hens on pasture as part of her silvopasture system. With the help of a movable chicken coop and temporary fencing, she is able to rotate her laying hens across the pasture. Susan will lead a virtual tour of her chicken coop set-up and share tips for raising poultry rotationally on pasture.

Host: Susan Young | Lucky Star Farm | Facebook

The Farm: Susan Young owns and operates Lucky Star Farm, located on a 20-acre stretch of land on the outskirts of Iowa City, Iowa. The farm is home to about 100 chickens, a small flock of turkeys, a dozen Nigerian dwarf goats and a trio of dogs and llamas. Susan is dedicated to organic practices and currently offers pasture-raised eggs year-round, along with turkeys for the holidays.
