Join us this July for a new, in-person, live event: the 2021 Acres U.S.A. On-Farm Summer Intensive with Zimmer Ag. Held in partnership with experienced farm consultants Gary Zimmer and Leilani Zimmer-Durand at their famous Otter Creek Farm near Lone Rock, Wisconsin, this two-day educational experience will help farmers, growers and land owners maximize their land’s potential.
Acres U.S.A. on-farm intensives are meant for small groups and are different from our large events in hotels and at universities, which feature classroom-style environments. Instead, our intensives are designed to be held on active, working farms to allow you to learn with all five senses, and return home with more than just textbook knowledge. Be ready to learn for two full days!
Learn on the farm with all 5 senses
SEE the farm during production season, and put yourself right in the middle of the action.
TOUCH the soil, the equipment, the plants and more. There is only so much a textbook can teach you.
HEAR from world-renowned experts who have spent decades bucking convention and learning farming systems that are profitable and nontoxic. Talk to your peers and other attendees about what they are working on at their farm, ranch or grow operation.
SMELL the rich soil of Otter Creek Farm and learn the way odors and scents can help control the insect populations.
TASTE great food grown right there on the Otter Creek Farm and in the region.
