Living on a Few Acres Conference

"Maybe a little less, maybe a little more."

Plan to attend this informative annual conference held on March 11, 2017 at the Deschutes County Fair & Expo Center in Redmond. Improve your knowledge and acquire new skills by taking courses taught by experts in a variety of subjects. There is something for everyone, from urban gardeners and hobby farmers to ranch and farm business owners.

This educational experience, presented by the Oregon State University Extension Service, is a successful collaboration of many Central Oregon agencies, sponsors, vendors and volunteers.

Join us this year and learn more about the following topics: growing tree fruits, first aid for horses, livestock, chickens, native bees, hay & pasture, irrigation management, water rights, food preservation, weed identification and control, native trees, wildlife habitat, zoning rules for mini farms and more!
