See how new farmer John Wood got off the ground during the Diversified Beginning Farm Tour on June 25 in southeast Ohio.

Wood manages his Homecoming Farm in Amesville, according to the tour description, “with a whole-farm approach with a focus on diverse, year-round income streams including fruit trees, vegetables, wood products and non-timber forest products such as maple syrup.” He’ll discuss his experiences as a beginning farmer and how to “best manage a mix of forested and unforested land.”

The tour is from 1-4 p.m. Admission is free; preregistration is encouraged. It’s part of the Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series. CFAES is a co-presenter of the series.
