We are nearing 10 registrations for the event and would love to see a few more. It’s going to be a fun day with felling, skidding, bucking, and milling showing many stages of processing timber into finished products.
And there will be good food, fun people, a movie, and libations.
Join us! 😉

The food was great!
Hash and coffee with fresh eggs for breakfast, chilli simmering for hours for lunch,, cornbread, bumpkin dessert, then crocked beef brisket with veggies for dinner followed by gluten free chocolate cake, washed down with rye shot and apple pie from a certain board member. 😉
Wish you were here? Maybe not at 6am when it was 12 degrees out…
However the weather, horses, people, and implements cooperated for a wonderful day of learning about forestry as practiced on our farm. We discussed and practiced safe felling, demonstrated skidding with the single horse and team with the forecart, worked with a scoot, and milled lumber.
The small journal I advertised in (the Green Valley Journal) came and took pictures and info for a story. I’ll keep you posted if they put anything in their next issue.
Folks seemed very happy with the day. With a small size we were able to make sure everyone got to see what they wanted. Driving opportunities went great.

A quote from one of our participants, emailed and reprinted with permission:
Just wanted to say thanks again for a fantastic day this past weekend. It was exactly what I needed in terms of an overview, and gave me a lot to think about for the future. Thanks also for being so inclusive with your wealth of knowledge – you and your folks made me feel right at home, and any fears I had of appearing woefully ignorant quickly went out the window. I’m sure we’ll run into each other again sometime in the future, so until then, take care!
That’s a solid success for DAPNet
