We invite all Backyard Farming followers in the mid-Atlantic region to attend the 2nd Annual Small Flock Poultry Expo organized by the University of Maryland and held on Saturday, February 2, from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM at the Carroll County Agriculture Center in Westminster, Maryland. Last year’s Expo was a huge success. We expected about 100 participants, but over 400 people showed up from 7 states.
Vendors will be available with live poultry and poultry related items. A poultry processing demonstration will be conducted. Producers and Extension specialists will be available for technical questions about production practices. 4-H will conduct activities and competitions. There will be a pasture coop building demonstration. Door prizes will be awarded. Lunch and snacks will be available for purchase.

I would be excited to meet our Backyard Farming followers there.
