The idea of Lean is to look for opportunities to both eliminate waste and add customer and owner value to your operation. What is it that you are currently doing that does not serve an essential need for your farms customers, employees and owners? Join us for a look at ways that pasture-based farms are eliminating waste in all their processes, from moving animals to new pasture to how to process orders and bring your products to market. Learn about the 8 types of waste and how you can work to eliminate them. Effective staff (or sole operator) training, mistake-proofing essential tasks, and the steps used to make daily improvements in each of your processes will be discussed, and we'll do activities focused on starting to make improvements in your own operation.
