Just west of Northfield, MN, overlooking the Cannon River Valley, you'll find family operated Get Bentz Farm, where beautifully colored Icelandic sheep can be seen grazing in the woods or on restored prairie as part of an intentional, rotational grazing and land management plan.
This tour site will feature grazing for healthy soils and sponsor a remarkable "outdoor classroom" demonstration about why it's important to improve soils by experts from Land Stewardship Project.
The Bentz family proudly offers:
Demonstrations: Head shepherd Theresa also spins and felts and will be demonstrating throughout the weekend.
