Harry provides an overview of a on-farm project funded by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture Demonstration Grant that demonstrates the potential viability of adding animals to perennial fruit productions. He will discuss the time and materials required to establish fencing for animals, provide a comparison of temporary vs permanent fencing, and will dive into the income and costs of raising hogs on pasture. Harry is the co-owner and full time manager of Hoch Orchard and Gardens, a diversified fruit orchard located in Minnesota.
