Lambing Weekends at Heifer Ranch

Our beautiful pastured livestock operation and organic market gardens are key training tools for supporting local farmers.

About the Programs

Women's Lambing

Lambing ladies enjoy a blend of facilitated discussions, experiential learning activities, hands-on animal work and the camaraderie of living and learning with a diverse group of women while focusing on Heifer’s work to empower women through sustainable agriculture. The weekend includes climate-controlled lodging, farm-to-table meals in our dining hall, direct work with our lambing production and a variety of other sessions such as backyard chickens, beekeeping, cheesemaking and goat milk soap making.

Lambing Production

This intensive program is geared towards men and women who wish to gain a deeper knowledge of small-ruminant production. Hands-on animal work with the sheep and goats will be combined with formal and informal informational sessions regarding starting and maintaining a successful farming operation. Participants will also learn about Heifer’s work globally and locally, while enjoying climate-controlled lodging and farm-fresh meals.
