Many people in Wyoming County have chosen to keep poultry in their backyards, some for eggs and some for meat. Our Poultry program addresses the issues and questions people might have regarding poultry keeping. IPM, housing, pasturing flocks, and feeds have been the subjects of our poultry classes and discussions.

Most recently, a dustbox building instruction workshop was held for keepers. This class was attended by parents and children alike, and produced 14 boxes. Enroll now and find out what the Poultry group with be up with their pasture walks to this summer!
