Integrated vegetable farming: Using horses and poultry on a vegetable operation

Monday, October 1, 4:00-6:00
Karbaumer Farm, 12200 Missouri 92, Highway, Platte City, MO

Klaus Karbaumer grew up using horses rather than machinery to power his farm. He still does; he and his wife LeAnn, who run Karbaumer Farm, use draft horses to plow, cultivate the soil, and do much of the heavy lifting on their operation. Their main business is vegetables, but they also offer eggs from pastured hens. Klaus and LeAnn will take us on a tour of their farm, talking about their sustainable production practices, CSA marketing, and how they have built a complete farming system using livestock and plants.
