Rubber Boots Workshops“We believe in organic pastured farming and want to help that become a reality for more farmers.” ~ Diana Ambauen-Meade, Founder and Owner

We work with farmers around the Pacific Northwest to utilize heritage and innovative farming practices and to help secure a thriving regional food system. One of the ways we are working with farmers is our launch of a farmer outreach program that includes how-to guides, educational videos, marketing materials for farm products, and hands-on workshops.

The Rubber Boots Workshop Series is a lineup of educational events where both new and seasoned farmers share knowledge. The goal of the workshops is to help overcome operating obstacles, learn best practices, and be successful feeding their animals wholesome organic food. The workshops will be presented by speakers who are using organic whole grains and feeds in innovative ways and have developed farming efficiencies.
