Grass-Fed Livestock Farm Tour is Tuesday

Grassroots Farm & Foods in Hillsboro hosts the Grass-Fed Livestock Farm Tour starting at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 22. The 380-acre farm raises Red Devon cattle, Katahdin lambs, Cornish Cross chickens and Berkshire pigs. The owners “lease sub-parcels of their land to independent dairy producers and are seeking to transition the farm to someone who will assume business ownership in steps,” the event description says. Tour guests will learn about grass-fed beef, pastured poultry, the farm’s wetland mitigation efforts and more.

Preregistration by emailing is required.

Part of the ongoing Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series. CFAES’s Sustainable Agriculture Team is a co-presenter of the series.
