Small Scale Livestock and Crop Producer Event
Sam Houston State University and the Texas Department of Agriculture is having an event on June 10th covering topics ranging from olive production to starting a Farmer’s Market. Texas Mobile Mill will be at the event showcasing the mill and discussing production of extra virgin olive oil.
Also, Lone Star Olive Ranch will be guiding a tour of the olive orchard at Gibbs Ranch. Lone Star Olive Ranch had the distinct pleasure of consulting with Prof. Robert Lane on installation of the orchard from the ground up. Over 40 students gained hands on experience during the process and several students continue to assist Prof. Lane with day-to-day management aspects of the orchard. Prof. Lane said, “It fits in nicely with our sustainable agriculture initiatives, complementing our Sustainable Agriculture and Food Environment program. The orchard also indicates our desire to provide educational outreach to landowners that may be searching for alternative agricultural enterprises.” To learn more about the date, time and location of the event click here SHSU June Event Flyer Final
