The 2013 Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series
This annual series of public tours features organic and ecological farms and
businesses in Ohio, providing unique opportunities for growers, educators,
and conscientious eaters to see, taste, feel, and learn what sustainable food
and fiber production is all about from the real experts—the farmers themselves.
This year’s sustainable farm tour and workshop series features 24 farms,
gardens, and food businesses, three university research centers, and three
educational workshops. The tours are presented by the Coalition of Ohio Land
Trusts, Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association, and Ohio State University
Sustainable Agriculture Team.
Consumers interested in local foods, farmers and market gardeners wanting to
learn more and network with other farmers, and aspiring and beginning farmers,
are encouraged to attend.
All tours are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted. Events will
take place rain or shine. Guests should dress appropriately to tour these working
farms. Hats, sunglasses, long pants, closed toe walking shoes, and sunscreen are
recommended. Tours involve standing and moderate walking; visitors with physical
limitations or other concerns should contact the tour host in advance. Please do not
bring pets to the tours.
