The Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series continues this evening — Tuesday, July 25, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. — with the Retail Meat Sales Farm Tour. It’s at Berry Family Farm in Pleasantville in Fairfield County. The farm sells grass-fed and non-GMO grain-fed beef directly to consumers. It also sells pasture-raised pork, chicken, eggs, seasonal turkeys and a limited supply of lamb. Admission to the event is free, but preregistration is encouraged.
CFAES’s Sustainable Agriculture Team is a co-presenter of the series and is the specific presenter of this tour.
