Wisconsin Women in Conservation Host: Kirsten Slaughter & Alicia Razvi, Wisconsin Farmers Union

Snack provided

Location:  Bouressa Family Farm

Rachel grew up as fifth generation on a dairy farm in central Wisconsin and in 2014 Rachel returned to her family’s farm to raise direct-market, 100% grass fed and finished beef. Bouressa Family Farm animals are on pasture year round, with access to fresh grass daily during the warmer months and grassy hay and alfalfa in the winter. Rachel believes in the value and need for perennial, restorative agriculture and agricultural systems modeled after natural ecosystems.
