FAQs

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please contact Jennifer Blazek, Dane County Dairy & Livestock Educator with any questions. She can be reached by phone, (608) 224-3717, or email, blazek.jennifer@countyofdane.com.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No need! We will have a list printed off from Eventbrite to check off participants the day of the event.


I have mobility concerns, what can I expect?

Please be aware this is a private farm and we will spend much of the time during the event out in the pastures. You can expect very rough footing (clumps of grass or dirt, holes, slopes) in the pastures. If you have any concerns about mobility and would like to attend this event, we recommend you contact the organizer (see above for Jennifer's contact information) PRIOR to the event so we can help provide accomodations.


Will there be food?

No food will be provided, however we will have water available for free for participants.
