The Maryland Grazers Network is a mentorship program that pairs experienced livestock, dairy, sheep and poultry producers with farmers who want to learn new grazing skills. The Maryland Grazer's Network mentoring program provides technical assistance and includes experts in pasture and forage management, financial management, marketing to improve your bottom line, and funding resources for grazing and water quality. The Network is a program of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Natural Resources Conservation Service. 

Future Harvest CASA's Amazing Grazing directory of grass-based farms that sell direct to consumers in the Chesapeake region is generously funded by the Maryland Grazers Network.
