The Maryland Grazers Network is a farmer mentorship program developed by Clagett Farm and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. The Network pairs experienced livestock, dairy, sheep, and poultry producers with farmers who want to learn new grazing skills. The Grazers Network Project Team provides technical assistance and includes experts in pasture and forage management, financial management, marketing, and funding resources.
The Grazers Network also provides funds for the Amazing Grazing Directory which lists 200 grazers in Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and West Virginia.
The Network is a collaboration of CBF, the University of Maryland Extension, Future Harvest, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service.
