Wernette Beef - 9442 50th Ave Remus, MI 49340
The MI Meat Network, in partnership with the Michigan Farm to Institution Network, is pleased to announce a spring farm tour of Wernette Beef on Monday, July 16th, 2018. This is a special opportunity for food service buyers and their value chain partners to visit a working mid-sized cattle ranch and learn about how beef is produced, marketed, and distributed and Michigan. (And hopefully pet some spring calves!) Wernette Beef is run by the women of Wernette Cattle Company, raising Angus–Tarentaise cattle on lush pasture in Remus, MI to supply local markets with quality beef. A bus travel option will be available from East Lansing to Remus (sign up in the registration link). This tour is free to attend and lunch will be provided.
Applicants attend classes in their county.
The Michigan Master Gardener Program is a horticulture education and volunteer leader training program offered by MSU Extension. It provides home gardening information to Michigan citizens through a network of trained volunteers. An interest in plants, a personal commitment to volunteerism, and an enthusiasm for sharing knowledge with others are the only prerequisites. Applicants attend classes in their county, learning basic horticultural principles and environmentally sound gardening practices. They then provide volunteer leadership and service to their community through a variety of gardening-related activities. The program objectives are to provide instruction in basic horticultural science to motivated active gardeners and to provide MSU Extension with trained volunteers who will provide timely, accurate information to the public in the rapidly expanding area of home horticulture.
