Suburban Farmstead and Micro Dairy Tour
Saturday, September 2, 2017
Jedidiah Farm and Studio is a five acre working farmstead in the suburbs of Westerville, where the Taylor family utilizes ecologically inclusive principles to encourage biodiversity and resilient food production. Visitors can expect to see a space that is in transition from the typical suburban lawnscape to perennial food forests, guilds, woodlands, and pasture, incorporating annual and perennial crops within rotational grazing principles. The use of dairy goats, honeybees, pastured poultry, and heritage hogs for pasture rehabilitation will be discussed during the tour, as well as the importance of incorporating guilds and native plantings to create self-supporting systems.
Directions: From I-270 N, take Sunbury Rd. Turn east on Smothers Rd. The farm is on the left nearly 2 miles east of the bridge. Park on the east side of the driveway, leaving space to turn around by the house.
This event is presented by The Ohio State University Extension Sustainable Agriculture Team and is part of the 2017 Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series. For a full schedule of events, go to www.oeffa.org.
